W10 Pro desktop, W10 laptop, W10 laptop, W10 Pro tablet (all 64-bit)

My first computer was an IBM PC with 256K RAM and 2 360K floppies bought in 1984 for around $2500. It was a real screamer with a 4.77Mhz 8-bit Intel 8088 CPU!

I no longer have my original IBM PC but do have 2 of them in my collection!

I bought 7 of the PCjrs during the employee firesale (none of them were for me). I modified the 128K sidecars that came with them to 512K to bring up the total RAM to 640K. The PCjr was kinda cool since it had advanced sound and graphics for the time but it had some severe limitations too.

I have 2 PCjrs in my collection.

Windows 7 Home Premium 32-Bit - Build 7600 SP1

This wasn't my computer, but I found it on a site from 1992. Check out the price on it.

Compaq Computer introduces the Compaq Deskpro 486/50L computer. It features 8 MB RAM, 120 MB IDE hard drive, 50 MHz 486, 256 kB cache, seven EISA slots, 1.2 MB disk drive, 1.44 MB disk drive, 512 kB VGA. Price is US$11,299.

The dollar goes a bit further these days.

I also had a learning computer when I was young and later had a Apple laptop for school work (on loan from school) which had a B/W Screen and the Battery lasted about a whole week.

Windows 8 Release Preview x64

A Radio Shack MC-10. Tiny little thing with 4 KB of RAM, a cassette interface, and a thermal printer. Hooked up to a regular old TV.

I didn't even care about computers at the time, but one night I started playing with it (doing a little programming), and then I suddenly became hooked.

I kind of miss it ... it would be neat if I still had it.

After that I graduated to a more capable machine, an Apple //e (which I still have).

Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers

Hi all

Haven't got the pics but here's a link

I had an EXIDY SORCERER with a "Massive" 32 KB RAM. (1978)

It Ran a CP/M type OS (pre-cursor of MS DOS) and had plug in modules for Basic and a Word Processor.

Great machine at the time - but a 128 KB (note not MB) Floppy disk system cost around 500 USD back then. CPU a ZILOG Z-80

Exidy Sorcerer computer

I also had the old BBC Micro based on a 6502 processor. This was a GREAT machine because you had to build it yourself -- I learned a lot from that old BBC Micro.
