For me it was 19, just last summer . I'm now scarred for life...Not that I caught fire to myself or anything, but I've not had a complete PC since. Theres always something that can be better (or Broken).
Great experience though, I would recomend it to anyone. Much better than my 8 year old packard bell I had before (Which BTW was a fantastic PC, still working great for a distant relative )

Mine was 9 or 10. I still remember it too.

It was a Pentium 133MHz with 16MB of RAM. To think I'm only 26 now, that was fun.
