mine?

An IBM Aptiva. 66mhz with 4mb of RAM, later upgraded to 8mb. Had a 2x cd-rom drive and diskette drive. featured an integrated VGA video card. Ran Windows 3.1 and DOS.

must say it holds a special place in my heart. played plenty of fun games on it. Command&Conquer, Warcraft 2, Syndicate Wars. Plus it helped me learn how to navigate DOS. Must say we take copy+paste sooo much for granted these days. haha.

mine was a packard bell 486DX2 :D with upgraded 8mb rams.  :D this was back in 1994.
Amiga 500, don't even know the CPU speed. But it only had 512K RAM, now that's old school.

Played my first PC game on that thing too. But this thing was more of the family comp than mine.

My official first comp was some Dell from 2002. Intel P4 1.8 Ghz, 512MB RAM, 60GB Hard Drive, and only an Integrated Graphics Card.

I agree with you on that. $300 even for a use computer was a steal.


You can't get a computer back in 1996 for $300.  Back then a computer went anywhere from 1k-2.5k brand new.  My computer and it was low-mid range was 1.5k.

Compac Presario back in 96.  Didn't really touch it till 2000.  Napster was the shit.  That 56k connection and the sounds it made.  Emulators galore.
