What was it?

Mine was an old NEC. Don't really remember specifics.

It was a hand me down from my Dad, he told me some things about it. I was 3 at the time.

Pentium MMX 233MHz
8MB RAM.

And the monitor was an old Sony one that fried the graphics card on both this computer and my next one :P

It was some crappy rig I got as an award for my amazing grades in math and science. It was a Windows 2000 and I got it when Windows Vista was just coming out. The first time I started it up I got a startup error. It couldn't go on the internet even with an ethernet cable. I couldn't read or save .png files, and finding games and stuff that worked on Windows 2000 was well nigh impossible. But to be fair, it had a lot of cool Windows Media Player visualizations that I can't find anywhere.

If you had given me a few hours with it, it'd have been running XP pro with as many games as you could play.

It was a Dell laptop, don't remember the specs too well; it's gutted in my closet right now. All I remember is that it was made before Dell decided to make piece of shit hardware.

When i was little, I could only use my dad's PC which was an old windows 95 machine. I didn't get my own PC until Christmas '06 which was a 500GB hard drive with 2GB of ram with windows XP on.. good times.. good times...

My dad had a Tulip computer when I was a child. I think he still has it somewhere.

The first computer I owned that was completely mine was a Win 98 machine with a 1.5 GB HDD. Yeah.

A really old Windows XP that my parents handed off to me when I was about 10. I made some good use out of it until we got the internet and I spammed Newgrounds a couple years later. I gave it to my grandparents but I had to delete everything first including the hidden porn from way back when my brothers used it.


If you disagree with my opinion, you're wrong. I'm sorry you have to hear that...

My brother did the same thing to my second computer.

I got him back for it when he got our moms old computer afterward.

My parents may be the least tech savvy people on the planet. Our first computer was a Gateway with Windows XP that we got back in 2003 or so. It was always extremely slow, probably had 512MB of RAM or less.

I'm still using my first computer. Before, I used a shared computer. The first shared computer was from 2003. The computer I'm using now is from 2010. It's a laptop that doesn't function as a laptop because the screen is fucked. My computer is a piece of shit. Even moving the cursor too fast slows it down.

I don't really remember the name or even the model, but I can say that it was a pretty old-ish computer running Windows 95 or something. My dad would take me and my brother to his office in the weekends to play Roadrash there. Ah, it was a real fun game to play.

I've never owned a computer. My current one belongs to a relative, they've been wanting it back lately.

First computer I used though, was a Toshiba laptop. Sturdy old thing, had a red clit mouse.

A Gateway desktop, running on Windows 95 (and later upgraded to XP when it first came out.).

My first computer was a handed down to me from my mom, it ran 98, had a 6 GB HDD, 64 megs of ram, and I think we got it right around when 98 came out. I still have it somewhere around the house.
