Well, that's exactly the same as the Alice (few posts earlier) that I got when I was 7 years old!

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.
I laughed when you mentioned AA. TI-99/4A was my first computer too unless you count small Casio programmables. Tunnels of Doom loading on cassette, good times.

TI-99/4A Fun Facts:
1 - One of the 'enhancements' was use of lowercase letters which were just smaller versions of the upper case letters.
2 - Bill Cosby was the spokesman.

Zork I, II, III were the coolest cassette games ever. Each of which are probably smaller then a text message.

Amstrad Mega PC.
It had a built-in Sega Megadrive/Genesis, something pretty unique, shame I sold it for peanuts.

The first PC I built myself was a Celeron 266, 2 gb hdd, 64 mb ram, SiS vga, Voodoo 1.

Smoblikat,lol.I was using the same compaq 10 years and I am still using the keyboard from it as well.Does your keyboard have the "smart card terminal" on the right side of the keyboard also? I never had any idea what it did.

Epson QX-10. I think I had an amber monitor and eventually got a hayes 1200 baud modem. God I loved this thing.
