Well, the first PC I ever owned/used was an IBM XT 286, but I also owned a TRS-80, an Atari 2600, and an Amiga 2000. The Amiga had a 7.16MHz processor and 512 KB of RAM, hah.

Windows 7 RTM x64
 
 

My first was a 486 with 4 meg of ram running windows 3.11.
I then saw a friend running windows 95 and my jaw dropped. Ran out bought a copy and could not install it. ( i was a complete noob and did not know that my floppy drive had died on me)
Then i thought it would be cool to see what 'Delete partion meant' suddenly no more win 3.11
Then i got a 133mhz with 16 meg ram FINALLY could install win 95. All good until eventually it happened. Win 98 came out.
So there i was, now i tried to install it and it would install but the reason i got rid of the computer was because it took 6 mins to boot 98.
I then left computers alone for a couple years until i got a tax rebate, my friend had opened a computer shop i popped in one day and then i fell in love.
Duron 700
10 gig ( YES 10 GIG) HDD
and a whopping 128 Ram. and a 8 meg graphics card. And a funky orange case.


So there it is from there on in, a vast majority of my income spent keeping up with the jones's but i love it
