Does anyone remember theire first computer? Mine was a commodore 64. It rocked, I wish I had one to fuck with now. And then we had a 3g Tandy computer that was pretty cool too, but it was really hard to use. Then my mom had one built likie 6 yrs ago it was almost 2 g and it still works just fine.

Mine?

A Dell 3/16SX

16MHz 386, 6MB of RAM, 30MB HD

Funny thing is, I got it in 1998. A couple years later I got a Compaq Prolinea 486-66 DX2 with 12MB of RAM and a 120MB HD, and a 1MB Tseng Labs ET4000 2D video card.

Same here... with the ribbon printer. God damn that thing was a bitch, hated the little sides with the holes that the printer caught to move the paper. Most of the time I'd rip the document when trying to rip those side things off. CHEAP perferations.

That is very, very wrong. I have had 3.1 crash on me so many times it would take both my fingers and toes to count it all up.

It was unreliable as hell...just like XP.

Alright, I know that this isn't technically incorrect wording, but I thought it was funny.

I had some crappy Acer or something (I truly don't remember). I now have a dell, that sucks slightly less.

Mine was a laptop I shared with dad. It used PC speaker, had a monochrome screen, Windows 3.1, and could run The Lost Vikings with acceptable performance.

Papa elf, I'm glad you kept on track, so really you weren't necro posting, but this thread is pretty old, also I have one question.
How do you spell child first the right time, and then just forget about a sentence later?

Carry on.
