Windows 7: What is the oldest computer...?

I filled the memory with one of my programs (written in basic), so I had to go in and replace every "print" statement with a "?" character to recover 4 bytes in each instance so I had room to finish it. Yeah, it was that tight. Peek! Poke! :)

We eventually got a model with more memory...but were still stuck with cassette tapes.

I lusted after a VIC20 but we couldn't afford one at home. I joined the Army to save for college and the only major purchase that I made was a C64...with another cassette drive...that I eventually upgraded to the world's noisiest floppy. I was in heaven.

From there it was a first gen PC, an Apple Lisa, and VAX mainframes in school, but those are later days.

That beautiful TRS-80 Model 1 appears below.

Windows 7

How about the Osborne 1, circa 1981. My first home computer that I also used at work. At the time, I was the only individual at work using a "personal" computer.

I'm sorry but, what could you even do on computers that old? I wouldn't have the slightest idea what to do on a thing without a screen.

10 x64 | 7 x64

I remember my Tandy 1000 SX.
Lets see; it has a 720 floppy but I had to add a string in the autoexec or config so it would see 1.4's.
89 Keys, 30 meg card drive, 640k, cga. And Tandy "deskmate II" software.
