    Can't forget that turbo button, to boost it up to 66 mhz.

    I remember how excited I was when I turned on my TRS-80 and saw the curser blinking.

    That was really all it could do, as it came with a cassette recorder (30 baud transfers) for storage and had 4k of ram. Yes, 4,000 bits. We didn't get extras in those days like modems.

    Who misses CompuServe?

    Mine was a AMD 486 DX2 66 4MB RAM 420MB HDD. Upgrade path was 4MB -> 8MB -> 16MB -> 32 MB, MS-DOS => WIN3.1 => WIN 95.

    In the last few months of usage, was able to go online with a 33.6 modem & Netscape 3.

    It seems like we can somehow judge a person's age based on the PC he/she first used

    I don't know the name of the PC anymore as I was still a kid back then. I remember I still have to put a floppy disk during start up. It was the first Windows OS with GUI. Anybody know this?

    Ahh yes, back in the days of the turbo button

    My first pc was an IBM something... cannot remember its physical specs but it did also have a turbo button

    Apple IIe was my first real computer. I had the Commodore 64 but only game play on that. Also had the intelevision game system but I think I actually had one of the pong systems as well. HA!! PONG! RIP IT UP. I can kick some serious ARSE on that! Boing - Boing - Boing - Boing - Boing
