very first MY OWN computer is an Acer TravelMate 4180 15.4" widescreen laptop...

first MY OWN PC is my current rig vvvv

first no my own but my parents' computer is a Pentium 2 @133Mhz, 64MB of RAM (I still remember the count up towards the 65536 in POST), and a WHOPPING 4GB HDD... with... I think integrated GPU?

then we got a 500Mhz AMD... Athlon? *I didn't build it and I was so clueless about hardware back then* 128MB of RAM, ehmm... forgot the HDD size... and a GeForce 2 MX400 64MB GPU...

then that one's PSU blew up so we got a Dell Dimension 4300? right away since we needed a computer in a hurry with I don't know what hardware... except we added in a dedicated GPU... ATI Radeon X300 128MB... the very first ATI card... and a 60GB HDD

a few years later, we FINALLY got something that was actually decent:
AMD Athlon64 X2 @2.3GHz *which isn't good... but better than what we had even in the Dell... a DUAL CORE!!!* and an ASUS mobo... not sure which model exactly... 2GB of RAM, 60GB *from the Dell* + 120GB + 250GB HDDs *first one with such big storage* and an ATI HD4850 that I was so proud of owning... since some parts I bought it myself... but it's still my family computer

and I'm typing all this in that very computer right now...

then earlier this year when I moved out, to get my sig rig

Oh boy! I did a lot of Basic programming on this one. Just to play some really dumb game, then started programming again, hoping the next game would be better haha
Good times.

I remember when computer magazines would provide hundreds of lines of code for the user to manually enter to play a game or create some silly app. It was really a great way to learn programming basics.
