Win7 Enterprise, Win7 x86 (Ult 7600), Win7 x64 Ult 7600, TechNet RTM on AMD x64 (2.8Ghz)
 
 

MY first computer was a Commodore-64 with a cassette tape drive in April 1983. I got the game Monopoly on tape & that was first game I ever played on a computer. My favorite game on it was "The Sword of Fargoal" I used a M$ dos program for the past 21 years in my business. I just recently had to upgrade it to a WinXp version as the software company is no longer supporting M$ dos. I have used just about every version of Windows on different computers in the past 25 years.

No, I was trying to make sure I wasn't remembering incorrectly - I never worked on Macs that much, and at that time and age the numbers on the Moto processors were foreign to me....

I knew there was a 680xx series, but I had never heard of a 600xx series - thus my confusion.

And, agreed, McBlz, I have used just about ever version - I never got to play with NT 3.5/3.51 and its predecessors, and I never actually played with Windows 1/2 either....

Wow - and I though digital cameras had small screens :P

Was there another company, such as HeathKit, or someone else, that had a machine that looked very similar to that? If not, then my friend who lived down the road had a Dad who worked on a machine much like that when we were in grade school....

Hi JohnG

I'm not sure about the particular company but a lot of the PLC ( as in Programmable Logic Controllers), manufacturers used that case design, (or variations of it as hardware changed), throughout the eighties and early nineties, for their system programming tools, The cases were built like a brick outhouse so I suppose they just lasted a long time, and of course they were not much bigger than laptops back then

My first experience was with AT 286 PC with no hard drive. Then built my first own with Pentium1 @ 166mhz that can run the original Red Alert back in 96.
