dad always said we had a computer before then... and i used'em... but this is the only one i remember. ::shruggs::
Cool to see somebody from hacienda heights. have family from there.
...my first computer was this windows 95 machine, i cant remember the specs as i was only 6 1/2 years old at the time, but it played doom 2 and jane's USAF '97.
then my first personal computer was this hewlett packard with probably a socket 378 celeron. god that thing was slow. me and my brother toasted the hard drive, then that gave way to my next one that would stand my preteen and teen abuse, trusty socket 478 pentium 4 dell optiplex something. i remember seeing it come out of the box for the first time and thinking how cool it looked. then i saw the pentium 4 and associated the 4 with 4 cores. lol. i was a noob
