What was your 1st computer?


Back in the 80's everybody was playing Atari, Intellivision, or Colecovision. I wanted something completely different and begged my parents for a Commodore Vic 20. I was lucky enough to get one but other than playing games that came in cartridges I had no clue how to operate it at the time. I think I was in the 4th or 5th grade when I was able to write simple commands and make the screen change colors and make funky sounds but other than that there was nothing else it can do that was useful at the time.

I`m not that old and I still remember those games... in fact I have Oregon Trail and O`dell Down Under or whatever its called on cds... I also have DinoPark Tycoon! I play it every now and then

First computer I ever used was a custom built one that an engineer made for my family to use... not sure what specs but I think its graphic card was Ati "Stealth"? or something? i dont know... cool games were Doom, Decent, and some other games... haha playing these games when i was around 7 or 8. Doom scared me shitless.

First computer that was actually mine was a Compaq Presario laptop... 233mghrtz, 6 gigs, some ATI something mg video card, etc. no ethernet... but there was modem.

I'm not sure which one, but it was an Apple that had a Black and Green screen. I just remember some bunny game, I was very young.

I still have my Commodore 64, 1541 disk drive, and commodore business printer stashed in the garage. I would put it on ebay, but I don't think they bid up to enough money to make it worth the time to pack it up for shipping. I still have my Atari 400 and Atari 800XL computers as well. Lots of games for them all, mostly on 5-1/4 floppy disks.

C64 was nice but never owned one. We'd go over to the computer stores and play though.

First pc was a TI-99/4A back in the 80s. Man I just looked up some of the games, forgot them till I looked it up, real old I don't think we owned all of these but I definitely remember playing them at one time or another!

I was just thinking, we would probably all have 10x's more fun playing all the old classic games than the new ones.

Which reminds me, my aunt has a mint condition Atari I need to talk to her about it.

I had Korean version of MSX-II. (It was called Daewoo IQ-2000)
It was amazing back then because everyone had Apple II with Black & White Screen, but MSX was colour w/ great sound! I still play few MSX games on my PC.

Damn, some of you are ancient. I remember Oregon Trail and Math Cruncher though. I still have my first computer, it's in the storage room, I wonder if it still runs.
