wish I had a pic of my old rig in 1997, I was 10 years old. I bought kingsized candy bars at Cosco and sold them at school for 1 dollar each. 24 kingsize bars for 10 bucks made a profit of 14 dollars every box. I sold kit kats, snickers, sour belts until I had enough money lol

A computer from before I was born, I think it had a 486 processor...
I remember it was slow, it used several minutes to boot into windows 3.11 and was generally big and heavy.

I have been told my Raven 02 case i have now is lighter...

my first pc was some large metal thing my dad brought home from work and gave to me, I spent countless hours playing oregon trail , carmen sandiego, and krustys super funhouse. As well as being in aww of chat rooms on whatever internet it was that came before 56k.

My very first pc was big & heavy, only thing I still know about it is that it had a 486 processor. I couldn't read or write yet, but I already learned the necessary dos commands to launch my favorite games from floppy disks

wolfenstein 3D
Commander Keen
Duke Nukem 2
...

ah the good days

TRS-80 from Tandy's Radio Shack. It was a ton of money and I remeber saving stuff on cassette tape

Hardware:
The Model I combined the mainboard and keyboard into one unit, in what was to be a common case design trend throughout the 8-bit microcomputer era, although it had a separate power supply unit. It used a Zilog Z80 processor clocked at 1.77 MHz (later models were shipped with a Z80A). The basic model originally shipped with 4 KB of RAM, and later 16 KB.[5]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TRS-80

Oh, and it's still around at my parents house.

I had a 386, bought it for a lot of money, too.
I remember saving up for it with my brother and our mom helped us out. It is kind of hilarious, and amazing at the same time to look at how much computers evolved in such a short time.

I can't wait to grow old, I wonder how cool technology will be.
