First computer was bought in the early 80's. The mighty 8088.
2 x 5.25 floppy drives and NO Hdd. Dos & Basic. Spent a fortune to get a RGB screen. Real flash, lol.

Next we bought a second one which was the Apple IIe.

Zenith Z-110, Low profile

To save typing: (Was a reply to a Keri post)

First home computer

Quote:
Zenith introduced the revolutionary Z-100 computer in mid-1981.
Targeted for professionals, etc...

The keyboard had a wonderful "feel" and "stroke action" that Byte Magazine columnist and fiction author Jerry Pournelle raved about in several columns.
  • Dual processors: 8085 and 8088
  • Available with CP/M and Z-DOS (non-IBM compatible MS-DOS variant)
  • Five S-100 expansion slots
  • Two 320KB 40-track double-sided 5.25-inch Floppy disk drives. Socket enabled direct plug-in of external 8-inch floppies.
  • 2x serial ports (2661 UART), one Centronics printer port (discrete TTL chips), light pen port
  • 640x225 bitmap display. 8 colors (low-profile model), or monochrome upgradable to 8 greyscales (all-in-one).
  • Base 128k RAM, expandable to 192K on-board, to 768K with S-100 cards. (Video RAM was paged into the 64K block above 768K).
The Z-100 had superior graphics to the contemporary CGA (640x200 monochrome bitmap or 320x200 4-color), IBM Monochrome Display Adapter (80x25 text-only), and arguably even the Hercules Graphics Card (720x348 monochrome). Early versions of AutoCAD were released for the Z-100 because of these advanced graphics.
The Wikipedia articles are WRONG - there was NO Z80 cpu. Should read '8085' in place of Z80.

But, that's to be expected from the internet (BS, MS, and PhD)....

I came to computers kind of late. Mid '60s. 1960's. My first was actually a mobile app on my FlintPhone.
