My first computer was an apple 2e. At one point I got lucky and was able to give it back to my parents for a apple 2c which wasn't faster but it was semi portable and had a 1200 baud modem.

First desktop I bought myself was a homebuild using an amd k6-s 400 mhz, don't remember how much ram but it had a 128 mb hdd, and a voodoo 3 video card.

First laptop I bought was a gateway solo 2150, had a soundblaster awe 64 and an ati rage video card, pretty swanky for a laptop of that era.

First phone I bought was a nokia 6110

First Tablet I bought was a dell venue 8 pro - not that old and I still use it daily.

There weren't hard disks on PCs back then

But I did have two 5.25 inch floppy disk drives (instead of just one floppy drive, which would mean swapping floppies... between the operating system floppy and the program floppy) edit: Maybe I still had to swap floppies ANYWAYS...

That monitor only displayed one color... green. Later I got one that displayed 16 colors

My family had one of those, or a similar model. I don't remember it having multiple floppy drives. It did have a couple kind of fun ASCII games you could run on it though.

Later we had a PC with a 3.5" floppy drive you could use to run Doom and Descent, and a guy down the street got a Gateway 2000 we could run X-Com and Syndicate on.

The first PC I bought with my own money had a 450MHz Pentium II and a whopping 32GB HDD.


Have you tried the latest multiplayer-only Descent? I forgot what the full name of the game is though. Of course the graphics are better but it's not as fun as the original.

When I was four years old I have an early memory of our computer: a Tandy 2000. I played some ASCII games on it. I believe we later got the CGA card for it and I could play Digger and Reader Rabbit, along with some DOS ports of arcade games like Space Invaders and Tetris.

I don't remember the specs, but I was given a Windows 3.0 PC at some point for my personal use in my room when I was like 10 years old. I don't remember doing anything on there other than solitaire and a sherlock holmes text game in DOS.

I haven't.. I believe several remakes/spiritual successors have come out within a relatively short period so the details are a bit muddled in my head: Sublevel Zero, Descent: Underground, and Overload.. Not sure if there are others I'm forgetting.

I don't think Sublevel had multiplayer. Underground does, and I've no idea if Overload will - I think it's still in early development.

I haven't tried any of them personally yet. I'm waiting for the dust from all the releases to settle before I determine which (if any) are worth a purchase.

Oh yes, it's Descent Underground. Another company got rights to the name, I'm not sure how much of the original developers are involved.

Got in a bot game and got my ass whipped. I used to use an analog joystick; I don't want to buy a new one and my old one either doesn't work on a newer computer and/or the calibration is funky so it wouldn't go straight no matter how I adjust. Oh well.

Not sure on the specs, but it ran Windows 95 and I had to physically press the power button when turning the computer off.

However, if we're looking at the first computer that was solely mine (present) then it was an Intel Pentium 4 processor with 2GB (I think) of RAM and something like an 80GB hard drive. Started with XP, then to Vista and then it died. My first fully purchased PC was custom built with an i7 3770K, SLI 670 GTX 4GB GPUs, 16GB RAM, etc...

In all, I've owned around 6 computers or so. I currently use one as a foot rest.

It wasn't new when it was mine but I was using it from when it was new, a 386sx with 20MHz coprocessesor, a little under half a megabyte of ram, a 5.5 inch 150MB hard drive and a 5.5inch floppy drive. It used EGA/VGA graphics, had a 2kbps modem, and of course AT keyboard port and a card to allow an AT mouse. I forget what kind of power supply it had but this thing was a big, heavy, metal brick.

I don't remember much, only it was a laptop (I've only had laptops), had Windows 2000 and I bought it used. It didn't last much, but it taught me some lessons (??).
