Does anyone remeber the first computer they got?
Tell us when you got it and what it had.
My first computer I got in 200 and it only had 128MB ran and a 40GB harddrive. When I got it, it was top of the line but now I would laugh at a computer like that.

I or my family got our first computer in 1999 which was a long time ago. I do not really remeber what it had but I know it was not to great at all. All I rmember about it was that it was a HP back when we got it I was not really into computers.

Mine was in 1987. It was a Commodore 64 (saying Commodore 64 will bring Stealth (http://www.technibble.com/forums/member.php?u=4) to this thread, its like his bat-signal). I was 5 years old and used to play the games on it. My next computer was a Amiga 500 which was upgraded to 1MB of RAM!, It was worth about $900 USD at the time.

On the topic of top-of-the-line-but-is-laughable-now. I have a 400mb slimline removable harddrive here... it cost $800 USD at the time.

You rang? :D

Likewise, my first computer was a Commodore 64. Although my dad bought it around 1986, I didn't get to use it till about 7 years later. It stayed with me for the next five years until I had to sell it to get my first decent PC. Now, as odd as it is, I'm working my way to get a couple of them back and start expanding them, just as a technical curiosity.

my first was in 83 or 84 i think and was an apple, my major upgrade came with an ibm that had a 233 mhz processor, and 96 megs of ram with a 4 gig hard drive running windows 95
