The first computer I used was an HP 3000 mini computer for a computer repair class while in college in 1975. No peripherals at all, input was via front panel toggle switches (programmed in machine language). The only output was the front panel blinky lights. Based on that experience, I felt computers were too much work to be useful.
The first computer I owned was an IBM PC in 1984. It had a whopping 256K of RAM, 2 360K floppy drives and could display 4 color graphics at a resolution of 320x200. With my IBM employee discount the computer (with a dot matrix printer) cost a mere $2500.
