Now do not be jealous guys... I was lucky. I had the whopping 2 x 8.5" disk drives. yes... "disk drives". none of this HDD or SDD crap you kids enjoy today. this was when a computer was a real man's toy! Oh and... well... at about 25 pounds, portable????



Estimated cost was about $2,400 at the time (1984-85)
And just how serious was this thing? The famed writer Arthur C. Clarke owned one.

Cassette tape hard drive,

192x256 16 color.. AA wasn't even invented.
300 baud modem
OS: ROM basic.
No mouse, but it had a Joystick port

For me, this was the first piece of hardware that had that addicting new computer smell. Hooked since.

We have the exact same PC for my parents' PC, except it came with the nVidia 7500 Lame Edition.

it had intel VIIV stickers and vista stickers instead though, but the case is identical, small world eh
