I can't remember my first computer, which consist of fun with multiple floppy disk at my leisure, waiting to be toss around and tortured. And random letters and numbers I would input on the computer itself.
I do however remember my first laptop that I got many years later, A Dell Inspiron 1200. Had to buy a internet adapter for that beauty.

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

Windows XP, or 99

My first computer was some HP desktop from '05. It had an NVIDIA geforce 6200SE or something like that, 2 GB RAM. I don't remember the processor. I just recently replaced it with a custom built one last year.

First Computer I had that actually belonged to me was a System 7. It's pretty neat. I loved it. I still have it, and it still works. I also had a Windows 95 Computer. I remember playing Age of Empires 1 on it for hours.

A Frankenstein Gateway running Windows 95, with internet access and dinosaur decals shellacked to the outer cover. I was the envy of every other 7-year-old I knew.


I make stuff like this and this with these people. And sometimes I make cute games too.

I had something that looked exactly like that, but with a different monitor.
I remember using it to do stuff like go on Nick Jr. or play a few games.
I even remember the dial up noises it made when my mom wanted to check her e-mail on AOL, haha.

My 2nd computer was an old one, I actually forgot which brand it was. All I remember was that it had ME on it. At one point, I specifically remember my dad putting Bonzai Buddy on it, too. That was a hoot.
And it died a few years after it was bought.

That depends on what you mean by computer, the first thing that I ever got was an Apple Newton. However, if that's not what would be classified as a computer, I'd probably say an HP computer with Windows 98. They both broke by 2007.

I had one of those tan colored Macintosh computers. The screen was shades of grey, and I played a lot of Dark Castle. Times have changed, indeed.

The first computer I used was a Windows 98 computer with a 1GHz pentium 3 processor, 512mb of RAM (which we upgraded to 1 gig i believe), and some Nvidia Geforce graphics card that i don't know the name of. The first computer i actually owned was a Toshiba laptop, which broke.

Now i'm using an HP that i bought and i can't say i'm too disappointed overall.

I don't really remember much about my very first computer. It was like over 10 years ago. All I remember what it was that it was a desktop. It was thick (obviously) and it froze alot.

My first computer experience was a 95 Gateway my parents purchased. We had games such as Descent, Wolfenstein, etc

I remember my first online experience, I was looking up a guide for Pokemon Red lmao I also found a chat room and unspeakable things were said.
