    TRS 80 (Trash 80) Model I

    followed by an Apple IIe and a PCjr.

    Then an A1000... and then I dropped off of the scene for a bit with that box. I picked back up in the 486 days but I was building my own stuff at that point.

    Give a man a match and he will be warm for a while, light him on fire and he will be warm for the rest of his life.

    aah, makes me remember days when one who has even access to computer (school lab) was considered as super intelligent and ffavoured by teacher. And those "big" floppies, heavily guarded computer rooms, and lots of things. and it was just 15 years back.

    that makes me think about future too, what we will have 15 years from now? james bond gadgets....:-), we never know.
    It\'s all about sense of power.

    This was my first (I think)

    It was a home computer and my dad got it for me around 1980. It was a Tandy / TI...something like that. I remember my dad teaching me BASIC. I made like a dinky calculator and remember thinking how cool it was to be able to make a computer do things. It also came with three games....I can only remember the car game. There would be a square on the screen...and from a top down view you would race (using the arrow keys) your little white car around the track. It was a black and white monitor. Ahhhh....memories.


    Then in college I got a 386 with windows 3.11 for workgroups...yeah!!! I even installed an internal modem....all by myself!!!! Yay!!!!! Dork!
    That was in 1995...I think.

    Apple 2 GS came with 128k RAM which was upgraded to 512k (had to play those Sierra games - Kings Quest - Quest for Glory, etc) and then up to a HUGE 4MB of Ram.

    Only until it got the 20mb external SCSI hard drive was it ever l337. Oh the fun we had.
    N00b> STFU i r teh 1337 (english: You must be mistaken, good sir or madam. I believe myself to be quite a good player. On an unrelated matter, I also apparently enjoy math.)
