RE: What was your first computer?
First computer I "used" (not really used, but rather pushed on buttons and played one or two games) was a ZX 81 (red color), and a ZX Spectrum 82 with a wooping 48K memory and 3.5MHz speed: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ZX_Spectrum
[Image: 280px-ZXSpectrum48k.jpg]
This was also the oldest computer I ever wrote a program for.
I still have it (incl. all manuals, etc) and it still works...

After that when I grew older we got a Commodore 64:

with 64 Kb RAM.. OMG! Still have boxes full of floppies with games (original version of MANIAC MANSION... WHOOOHOO) and also many cassette tapes (instead of floppies which were 'state of the art' and with disk drives as big as a modern designed media center..., computers worked mainly with tapes). Also all the manuals, etc, and working (although keyboard has many sticky keys :p)

This was also a computer which you could literally pull chips out and replace them, solder your own connections, etc... It was a tweakers' computer, so to speak :p

After that, my first "Personal Computer" was a 286 with a CGA graphics card (I believe with DOS 3.0), then switched to a Tulip 286 (DOS 4 and 5) with Hercules graphics card, which is b/w but with special high resolution (7xx x 500) (it was a "Tulip").

From there it went 386 (Windows 3.x), 386DX, 386DX2 (Win 3.11), 486DX2, 486DX4, Pentium (Win 95), etc...

And somewhere in between I sometimes used an Atari and my nephew had an Amiga...

It had a CD-drive and a floppy!
224MB of RAM.
Some weird AMD-processor which isn't easy to find today. :p
And an even harder to find AMD-graphics card. Something with 3D in it... :-/

RE: What was your first computer?
the first PC I bought myself had something like this: AMD K6 350MHz (@428MHz), 128MB RAM, 16MB graphics and 6GB HDD. I upgraded this PC until what I have now, but in fact there's nothing left from what I had then. Last thing I had from the beginning was the case, which I replaced about 3weeks ago :P

Before I had my own I used to use my dad's PCs, of which I don't know the exact specs. The first PC I remember here at home was one of those with a 2-digit LED screen showing the clock speed (first 80, later 99)
