What was your first PC? & what do you use it for?

Hello guys,

My first computer was custom built desktop. Built by shop called Active Computers in Bexhill, East Sussex. I got it with the idea of using it for college work, but ended up playing games on it.

I had a P3 custom built PC with win98 on it. I used it for school and although I still have it, I don't use it - it's a dust collector now.

I had a 386SX 25 (yes, 25 MHz) with 4MB or ram. Used it for gaming, yes gaming, and played the original Wolfenstein 3D and Twilight 2000

I even remember buying a 512k video card for it

Windows 7 Ultimate

First computer was a family one we got for Christmas when I was 6 or 7, looked almost exactly like this one

Then we had a few HP's until I built my own computer that I still have (just been upgrading it, also now have new monitors, keyboard, and mouse )

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.

My first P.C. was a very old computer donated to my by an organization that works with people with disabilities the computer had an ancient Operating System called M.S. Dos, which I used to just typing I couldn't save any documents and I played a few games on it. Sorry for writing so big I can't write or read in small print it strains my eyes.
