P2-266 @ 309 (3*103)
128MB generic pc100
Diamond stealth g460 (intel i740)
Seagate Medalist 6.4GB 5400rpm
a Texas interment what ever they were called...unless you conceder the pong game controller a computer
Aside from the ol C64, I started with an IBM PS2 286, with a dead 20 meg hard drive (big loss eh?) and a whopping 1 meg ram. It's MCA as well, so practically nothing works with it. Hmm... It's just sitting on that shelf taking up space. I could strip it down and try to use that mostly plastic case...
That Colleco hand held football game. Does that count?
But really, it was system built by a small local computer shop. Had a Cyrix "386-to-486" processor. With the 14" monitor it cost $1400. Geez.
has anyone heard of a peachtext computer?? no one seems to but it was a green screen. only really used for word processing. Man those were the days. my second was a 486
Don't miss them one bit.
The first was a VIC20, followed by a couple C64s with a tape drive AND 1541 Disk DRIVE!
another vic 20 and a c64,,
it looks as though most of us are children of the roaring 80's
does anyone remember the games Artillery, and Dam Busters?
386dx with 40 meg of hdd, 4 mb of ram and some video card i dont know what.
Yikes. Triple posting?
Anyways...the first one that my family owned was a 486 w/win 3.1
...but that one doesn't really count because I never liked it (couldn't do **** on it).
The one that really, really sparked my interest in comps was a Dell PII 233, 32mb ram (since upgraded to 64, soon 128), 24x CD-ROM, 17in monitor and internet access! This comp was exactly 3 years ago, this December (still have it). THAT is how long I've been into computers.
Bought my VERY OWN computer 13 months ago. It was a Dell celery 400mhz, 192mb RAM, 15in monitor, 4mb vid, 4/2/24 CD-RW, AWE 64 soundcard. I sold it this past July.
In August, I bought a Dell PIII 800mhz, 128 PC133 memory, 19" FD Trinitron, 64mb Geforce2 GTS, 8/4/32 CD-RW, SB Live. I love this computer
