Your answer doesn't answer your own question.
Maybe you meant to ask, "When did you get your first computer?", since that is what you answered.
I got my first computer by going to the Amiga store in October of 1992 driving my Dads 1988 Dodge Caravan 4cyl 5 Speed, and giving the people at the store $2500 for an Amiga 3000 and a Commodore 1950 14" Multisync Monitor.
Specs: 25mhz 68030 Processor, 6MB ram, 120MB SCSI Hard Drive, 880KB Floppy.
Added the following upgrades the next year:
14MB of ram (upping it to 20MB) $350
Video Toaster 4000 card ($2500 video card, the most expensive single add-on I have ever bought since)
345MB SCSI hard drive ($345) (required for the Toaster since the software was almost 100MB)
I ended up trading the Video Toaster card a couple of years later for a complete PC system so I bought a Picasso IV display card.
Picasso IV 24bit Display Card ($500)
The Picasso is not the same thing as the Video Toaster, the Toaster was an NTSC Video switcher, 4 Input, 2 output, and had a Digital Still Store.
I bought the Toaster only for Lightwave 3D, since that was the only way you could get that program.
When Lightwave was released by itself, I traded the Toaster card.
The Picasso card allowed for a higher color bitrate on the main desktop of the Amiga.
In 1996 I went completely PC and have been Windows only since, but, less than a week ago I put OSX on my Dell Mini 9 and have been impressed with it.
