Windows 7: What was your first computer?

(We were an authorized repair facility for PB, as well as Toshiba) Anyone outside of warranty status might as well have junked their computer if it needed a M/B because the price of the boards was astronomical. And...most of the time, the issue with the PB was the M/B...
