A non-original Dell Optiplex GX1, I got it from my grandparents in 2009. It was the first computer I had that I could call my own. It had a 433Mhz Pentium III, 384MB RAM (the ram sticks didn't match 100% though but it worked), some nVidia PCI graphics card, some sound card, 160GB IDE HDD, and a DVD-RW drive. The floppy drive that came with the computer was missing. I do feel some nostalgia for it and I would like to have a GX1 again. Then again, I heard those machines sucked.
Hi. After C64, my first PC was an IBM PS/2 Mod.30:
CPU 8086 8MHz, 640KB RAM, FDD 720K, HDD 20MB, MCGA Video Card
OS: IBM Dos 3.30
A custom built early 2000 PC, With a Pentium 4, 2GB RAM, and a GeForce GT something Videos card. 120GB HD, Sata CD burner and IDE CD player. Windows XP Home 32-bit. RIP Blue Alien (That was the name I had given it) It had died due both a CPU and a Motherboard failure.
Mine was just an IBM Aptiva, with Win98 SE. It was rather crap I've got to admit.
I had a 1351 mouse, 1541 drive, a super snapshot v5 cartridge, along with a 1200 baud modem. Such an awesome thing.... Until I got a 286.
My first computer was 98NX.
It and I was born in 1998 and my father gave it to me when I was 6.
It has "Windows 95/NT" sticker and runs Windows 98SE.
I know 98NX is Windows PC compatible machine from NEC with PC 98 System Design Guide by Microsoft / Intel.
Of course it is compatible with DOS/V (PC AT compatible) except 16bit ISA/legacy.
(MS-DOS 6.2/V is installed on 98NX too)
98NX logo is deleted after 2000 when DOS/V machines were cut off 16bit legacy and became Windows PC compatible with PC 98.
As I threw it away 9 years ago, my memory may be wrong...(What I call "98NX" could be "VALUESTAR NX".)
My first computer was a IBM PS/2 Model 80 with a 386DX-16MHz, 2MB RAM, and a 44MB MFM hard drive. A couple years later I replaced it with a high end PS/2 Model 80 with a 386DX-25MHz with 64KB L2 cache, 8MB RAM, and 320MB SCSI hard drive. It was a MUCH faster computer!
My first computer was a Compaq Presario 5304 running Windows 98. It had a Cyrix MII processor, 64MB of RAM, and a 4GB hard drive. Also had a built-in Zip drive, which I still own and use in another machine.
Dell Latitude D810 with 1GB RAM and Windows 7 (originally Windows XP). Oh boy, that thing was slow as hell...
"Oh boy, that thing was slow as hell..."
My TI-99/4a would beg to differ.
Mine was a no-brand Windows Me machine that I believe was ordered for a hospital system. It had 64 MB of RAM and I believe a 433 MHz Intel processor (Pentium of some sort?) Anyway, I got it to perpetually start up in Safe Mode when I tried to record my guitar through the headphone jack on the CD drive. (I'm still not sure how that happened.) We tried to upgrade it to XP but after the install it rebooted in Windows Me. Eventually we just took it apart. I still remember the Samtron monitor and the Active Desktop always crashing. Man, that computer was awful.
Commodore 64. I should have ditched it long long before I finally did. But I did have 2 drives, a mouse, 1200 baud modem, printer, tape drive, koala pad, and a fast load/debugger cartridge.
Mine was an iBook G3. I broke it when I was very young because I was watching a space shuttle video with my parents, then the video wouldn't load further, and as any sensible toddler would do, I smashed my fists into the keyboard and broke the computer.
