I think my first PC was an NEC PC-8801B. The 8801MKII-AR certainly wasn't the first. 5 second boot straight to a command line, hell yeah! Well, it booted straight to BASIC so there wasn't really a command line. Brings memories of loading a cassette in the tape deck and waiting for a program to load while wondering at the marvels of technology ("cassettes are for music!").
...on a second though, that just made me feel old. Ugh. Anyway, what it was used for, I'm pretty sure it was my Dad's old machine. Me, I just messed around in BASIC. Attempting to port all those nifty games from magazines like Atom and Pet were really fun until you got to the machine calls, bleh.

Pionex 486DX2-50, 4MB RAM, 8 bit sound card, 9600 BAUD modem, 15" monitor, speakers. One of the first "multimedia" PCs. Can't remember the HDD size. Upgraded the modem to 14.4 and sound card to 16 bit. I used it to play D00M after I had a shop solder some on-board cache onto it! I also bought first version of Netscape so I could surf with graphics. Ran Windows 3.11. Custom built all subsequent desktops.
My first PC was an old HP Pavilion cant remember the model since I got rid of it, but i looked kinda like an HP 8760C but it had an AMD processor instead of an Intel processor that i got when i was in the 5th grade, and i made it last 7 years till i got to my senior year (or jr) year in highschool...upgraded it from Windows 98 to Windows XP it was a REALLY good PC too. I kid you not, I NEVER got a BSOD on it, and it was able to run Photoshop and Illustrator CS2 (slowly of course, but what do you expect with 256MB of RAM). I miss that computer sometimes, since it had about 7 years of memories in it haha.

My first was a Timex that used a B&W television as a monitor. I had to program everything I did using DOS. The printer was a thermal printer that used a roll of paper that looked like an adding machine tape. Some fun. Needless to say there was no Internet.

October 1999. I bought a PC used from someone along with an Okidata Laser B&W Printer. The computer was branded as Datacom West and surprisingly the case was standard ATX as it could still fit today's parts. Originally, it had Pentium with MMX 200 Mhz CPU, 64 MB of RAM, a Yamaha built-in Sound Card, a Diamond Stealth 3D 2000 PCI Video Card with 4 MB of Video RAM along with a US Robotics 56K V90 Modem and a 15" CRT Pixie Brand Monitor. I thought I was so cool with this PC that one week after buying it, I went out and went to buy two games for it.
I bought Need For Speed III: Hot Pursuit. I wanted to buy High Stakes but it was too expensive ($40) so I bought Hot Pursuit for $20. I also bought a boxed copy of Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire for PC for $10. I remember the video card didn't work too well with it. I could never the Gall Spaceport level because I could never go fast enough in the Jetpack toward the end of the level. I kept thinking it was me but when I upgraded that video card to a smoking 3dfx Voodoo3 3000, I could then magically pass this level because the video card could finally keep up with the game. Yep, I thought I was real cool with this PC over 10 years ago now. How funny to think how far we've come now.
I still am looking to build a legacy PC to run some old games I have with that old 3dfx Card.

don't have a pic of it -- it's long since gone to "Computer Heaven" but my first was an EXIDY SORCERER. The first App (and even todayit's similar to the app I use most) was a Spread sheet rather like 1-2-3.
You loaded the applications via "Rom Packs" which looked rather like a sealed version of old 8 Track tape cassetes used in very early Car music systems. - Anybody remember those.
Anyway I had a lot of fun with that machine and even learned some Machine and Assembly language programming -- ah those were the days before the boring pin stripe corporate suits and "reams and reams of Change Management and Risk assessement").
Here's some pics from the web however. You can see the "Rom pack" one shown is the "Word Processing Pack".
