    Packard Bell 486 Intel Processor. A whopping 75 MHz. I was the first nerd in my school to get Windows 95 too. Yeah, everyone was envious of me.....not really.....

    Gateway 2000 (back when it was called that) - Pentium 90, I think. I had to pay so much for a 17" CRT monitor and to get 2 - 1GB hard drives.

    It was called a Sinclar, and I had to connect a Cassette player to it to load programs. It took about a half hour.
    Then I upgraded to a commodore 64. It got me through my high school years, and I can still hear that fucking grind of the dot matrix printer. Need an excedrin.

    An old IBM tower with an Apple screen, and Windows 3.1. Go command line!

    It had a 5 1/4" floppy drive, and the all new 3.5" floppy drive too. The new wave of storage!

    Still have mine and it still works!

    First computer was a Vector Graphic with two 5-inch floppy disk drives and the CP/M operating system, the OS which lost the new IBM account to DOS because the CP/M guys were away for the weekend and didn't return IBM's call right away. Bill did, so the story goes.

    Uhm, The Commodore 64 was NOT an Apple product, it was manufactured by Commodore Int'l.

    The MacIntosh Computer, which was around at the same time as the Commodore 64 and C64's predecessor, the VIC-20, struggled to survive. The Mac's high cost (around $1300 at the time) and lack of developer support made it more of a status symbol than a practical computing device for millions of homeowners.

    * Edit: C64 is the home computer that introduced America to PC gaming icon_smile.gif
