Your first ever PC - Page 5

post #41 of 106
First I ever bought myself was an Acer E380 with a 4200+ 1GB RAM and the first four horrible months of Vista. 811 USD for that crap.

First every used was some thing with 95 on it that recently I booted up only to have it tell me that the hard drive erase had been successful. This was after it stopped running for 5 months. Its still my favorite comp to do papers and type on though, gotta love the vintage CRT with the burned out edges from use. LOL

First PC that was a gift from my dad was an Alienware laptop, I was about 12 or 13 at the time and was the happiest kid alive, even though the laptop overheated and put blisters on my legs. (I got a cooler to prevent that)

I do regret it now, the system was sent back time after time for repair and never was truly fixed, it crashes and is constantly an issue, I no longer use.

Quite sad when a (<$1000 Dell Latitude D600 is the alternative for a $4500 "Desktop Replacement")

In the process of building a desktop now though.

Compaq 486DX2 50 with a 270mb hard disk and 16mb. Ram was $250.00 for 4mb at the time. And we think DDR3 is expensive.
