My first computer...
I got it december 94' it was a Pentium with 90MHz , but it was "jumped" to run like it had 100, the HDD had something arround 850MB, and the CD-ROM was slow as hell -> double speed, the usual Soundblaster for music, and possibly something made by Elsa for the video. The OS was Windows 3.1.

I still have all the DOS and Windows Floppies.

Tandy 1000 640 upgraded to 1 Meg RAM which was useless due the the 640 limit. 1.2 and 720K floppies a VGA upgraded to SVGA.
Totally sucked because Tandy (radio shack) was using the IBM model of personal computing. Tandy-ware. It was kludge-y at best and more often a steaming pile.
Nothing was compatible.

The first Sony VAIO PC arrived in 1996. Sony’s PCV-90 combined a 166MHz processor with 16MB of RAM, a 2.1GB HDD, and a 28.8-kbps modem. It shipped with a 3D graphical interface on top of Windows 95.

Kinda off topic but I was watching this video


This guy lives in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Listen to the name of the guy who gave him the spare parts, he says it early in the video.

@Lyle was that you?

I remember my first computer ran windows 98. I was in kindergarten at the time so I have no idea what it was. We had it until I reached grade 4. And I still can't remember wtf it was. All I did on it was watch porn and play really shitty games like quake and half life. I discovered the world of torrents through Kazaa but still was too retarded to find out how much processing power my shitty low end 1999 computer had and if it was capable of playing any of the higher end games at the time which it wasnt. I had until 2005. and finally had to talk to my mom into getting a new one and explaining to her how much of a piece of shit it was. I also had the original xbox at the time, but nobody would buy me any games, and being 12 years old at the time I didn't have any money, so of course I'd look to the internet for free games, which of course failed miserable because I had no graphics card or memory that could process any of the games that were out at the time.

A pentium 3 that barely ran Warcraft 3 or the Sims 1 w/Expansions. Thing was a potato even during 2001.

I got a Timex Sinclair 1000 with the supermath cassette and a black and white tv. I still have the T/S1k in the basement, somewhere. I'm currently saving up for a 1500 and the various perifs and shit to "trick it out".
