back in 1995-6 my father bought a Pentium I 133mhz with 16ram... and 1gb of memory.. it didnt even has Windows on it.. just BIOS...

Sounds like its safe to go ahead and bend that ass over.

First computer ever was a 1998 Compaq given to me by my grandfather in 2003. 380MHz AMD K6-2 and 64MB. I actually put Windows XP on it after a RAM upgrade...

First computer I bought myself was a refurbished Apple iBook in 2006. Lasted a year, and the GPU burned up. Miserable PoS.

And now I have a kick-ass rig with a 2700k i7, 16GB, dual GTX560s, and some SSDs in RAID.

Texas instruments TI-99 4/A. Still have one actually.

I used to ride my bicycle like 4 miles to the public library to get books on how to program in Basic because thats all you could do with it without the cartridges. Good times.

That was like 20 years ago, lol

I don't remember the brand we had for the first computer I remember in the house, but it was a basic DOS and we programmed all kinds of games. Like the Happy Birthday Train, lol. Then I remember upgrading to a Packard Bell with Windows, and I had a Compaq Presario laptop with Win 3.1 and docking station.

Just doin' my thing in the car audio. Still working on getting build forums up.

Commador 64 Here. Played the shit out of Bard Tales 3 Theives of Fate. There was also some racing game that you could change the gravity pull and everything in so when you hit a jump you would just keep going and going, Could go upstairs get a drink and come back down to the computer and you might have landed by then.

Lol i miss those days so much
