Default I think I have you all beat...

Try an Atari 800 with 48k of ram. The 5 1/4 drives cost damn near as much as the console did. Try a 300 baud modem as an add on. I been around for a while...LOL

Default Re: What was the first PC you got?

Well I started this thread and I must say that when I was taking engineering at university, I learned FORTRAN, GWBasic, PASCAL and the programming was done on cards that were keypunched. The computer was so big that it took a whole room the size of an ordinary classroom.
Today, this same computer could probably fit in a briefcase; even a palm PC!
Yes dinosaures did exist.
