    I learned on an IBM PC no joke at all my dad had it before i was even born and used it up until 6 years ago. He told me back then a 30 mb hardrive was $1,500 dollars. It had DOS 2.0 and had one 5 1/4 floppy drive. I'm sixteen now and I remember as a little kid learning how to use it. The keyboard weighed like 20 pounds and the case itself was a monster too.

    My exposure was to an Ataria 800 used for games. My first true PC (owned by me) was a 386 16mHz w/a 40MB HD and windows 3.0 (you never want to use w3.0 it was painful)
