      Some old Gateway at my Grandma’s house. Can’t remember if it was on Win95 or 98, though it was probably 98. Played a lot of Chip’s Challenge, Word Rescue, Math Rescue.

        Pentium II 355 MHz, no idea about the rest of the specs. This was in 1998 when I was 6 years old. Same vibe as this
        Until then I was a book kid and scoffed at the kids at school huddling around the PCs they had (I have absolutely no idea what those were, but one ran Windows 3.1, one Win95 and one must have been a Mac). My dad brought the Pentium II box home and I was hooked. We used this for 6 years, which is freaking insane considering the speed at which tech became obsolete in those days. On the plus side, nobody believed me when I told them the new box (Pentium IV) had a 200 GB hard drive.

      It was some desktop with IBM logo on it. Had a green monochrome monitor with it.
      Don’t remember what OS it had but it wasn’t a terminal. It had Prince of Persia, PACMAN, paratrooper, and program for typing documents.

      Pic rel. Purchased in 1987, still have the boxes and manuals, kept at my sisters house so 6 year old me could not tear it to bits like I did with just about anything that had batteries or a power cord.

      I was told that I first used a 286 clone PC when I was like 2 years old, my mother was working on some spreadsheets and had me type in some numbers for her. The one I actually remember using is a Pentium 100 clone with a Diamond Stealth of some sort and a Sound Blaster AWE32, it was absolutely loaded with DOS games and some Win95 stuff.

        wait no, we still had Juno at the time but I didn’t really know how to get online until we bought our Windows 98 machine and I was permitted an AOL kids account. Good times.

      Had picrel as a kid. Had the fastload cartridge so my little brain didn’t have to learn boot commands.

        I remember my father programmed quickload commands into the C64, all I had to do was to press a certain button combo and it loaded the games. I never had to type commands in either. It was weird to learn years later that this wasn’t the standard.

      Not my pic, but seeing it makes me happy. My Dad had a few of these old Dell Optiplex ‘G’ units since he knew a few friends in IT at the hospital he worked at. I remember playing Starsiege Tribes.

      I honestly wish I had one or so of these around with a Compaq monitor for those vibes. I wish I knew what I knew how in terms of what you could do with computers back then. It sucks, all I did was do video games (SNES, N64, Gamecube, etc). Man, I could have started a BBS or some cool type shit.

      i broke the disk drive of my grandfather’s desktop by putting coins in it when i was too young to remember. i think my first actual computer use was when my family shared a dell laptop for non work related things and i used to wake up at 6 every morning to spend my hour of screen time playing flash games.

          aye, did my first forays into c and asm on it. I belonged to the school my dad taught at, he’d bring it home with a lear siegler terminal on holidays for database development.

          He bought a trs80 model 2 later which was the first home machine we had.

      Rockwell AIM65, programmed Conway’s game of Life in assembler to print out on the built in printer, learned all about opcodes and PIO on that. Never did get an AppleII, next was a Sage 68000 running UCSD P-System, learned spreadsheet programming, that was kind of a mind blower at the time.
