Windows 7: What were your first computers?

26 Jun 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

First computers were Atari 400's
then an IBM PS/2 Model 30, 8086 processor, 20MB hard drive, Monochrome screen my dad bought in 89 for $2K when we lived in Iceland.

My first PC was an Amiga 3000 with a 120MB SCSI Drive, 6MB ram, and a 14" Multisync Monitor that I bought in 1992 for $2500.
My Amiga blew away all of my friends PC's at the time.

Win 7 32 Home Premium, Win 7 64 Pro, Win 8.1, Win 10

My first one was a Packard Bell (Packaged they were called). This was in 1995

It came with a Pentium 100MHZ, 16MB of RAM, Video memory of 1 MB, cache memory of 256 KB, a 14.4 Modem, A CD ROM that read at 2X speed, a Hard drive that was 1.25 GB, a 3 1/2 Diskette drive, and Windows 3.1.

And a 15 inch monitor. To which you bolted speakers on each side. They called it "Amphitheater Sound".

We bought it one month before Win 95 came out, so we got a free upgrade.

I had an issue with the software so I called tech support and after describing the sys to the tech, he said:

"Wow, you must have paid some money for that. You could run a small office with that."

I believe we paid over 3,400$ for it.
