    I think I started with either a Win95 or some form of Mac. And if you mean what kind of computer than I started with a Gateway or HP. Not sure though...

    I started with the good ol' Vic20!

    Then it was a Commodore64

    Then a clone 286x16, to a clone 386x33, to a clone 486x100

    To now a Compaq Presario 5403 (now heavily modified)

    This may seem odd to some, but my first computer was the Mits Altair. My dad got it in 1976 then he gave it to me in 1986. hehehe I was only 5 years old. A young master mind programmer.... I wish I still had my Alltair...

    Well, my first exposure to computers was way back when I was around 6-7 years old but I can't remember what kind they were. My first real box, one that was really mine to work with as I choose, was an old Packard Bell 486SX-25 running Windows 3.1. That's where my interests were really sparked and here I am now. I've learned a few things since those days...

    I started out with an Apple Macintosh. It had 640k of memory and didn't have a hard drive. But I could still play asteroids.

    I then graduated to an 80286 PC with 1MB of RAM with a 20MB HD. It ran 16MHz in "turbo" mode . But it was enough to learn how to program on.

    the first time i put my hands on a computer, it was about 6 years ago. it was at my father's office. i dont remember the os but i think it was msdos or win 3x. it had two games. pacman and space invaders. i dont know the make. at that time i didnt know **** about computers. i didnt even care when i saw one. i use to think that people become lazy because the computers do all the work; not knowing that household robots weren't invented yet.
