First machine I used or first one I owned?

First machine I used was in elementary school, The same Apple II that the OP posted. Used to play Oregon Trail all the time on there.
First one I owned was a PII 350Mhz. w00t for technology.

for those with those old systems still, hang onto them. collectors want them now.

Yah...I remember 4 sure!
My first experience was in 1973 on an IBM Punchcard monster that filled an entire room at the IBM building.
I made a 5'6" poster of a girl in a bikini out of different characters (1 ! ~` so on). I think it took some 4000 plus cards but the entire project was done just to learn the logic pattern the machine used.
It was the only computer in the Province and we had to book time 3 months in advance to get our Gr 11 Computer class in there, and only a few of us were allowed to actually make the program. It was an eye opener cause all our school computer class consisted of back then was taking "plug" boards and putting them togather to make lights blink...ooooooooo

That's just a rumour - actually, it was one of his later models. I have managed to find a picture of his very first one

Well my first was in '98 running Windows 98 and not even the SE version, it came with a massive 2.1 GB hard drive and I think it was 34 MB RAM either that or 64 MB, and had a 15" monitor. It came loaded with Lotus SmartSuite which was great with all those little drawers at the top of the screen
