I'm not really sure what my first computer was, but I can remember that I broke my mom's computer what she needed for work at age 3 :scoots:

Technically my first computer was a Commodore 64. The first PC I totally own and was not in the "family's computer" set up was a Pentium 4 machine with a no-name case.

My first computer was a Compaq Presario laptop that ran Windows 7 I got in late summer 2011. Since, i've had two others, both HP laptops that have Windows 8.1 and 10 respectively.

I think it was a Dell? Have no idea on its specs or what overall make it was. That was a looong time ago. It eventually became borked on several levels.

I have a 8088 computer with MS-DOS 6 on it. It is one of the earliest IBM PCs, with the speed of 4.77 MHz. My mom found it in a dumpster and brought it home, and i have had a lot of fun with it. it has a Monopoly game installed on it, and some Microsoft Word for DOS stuff.

The RAM was very little, but it really worked quite well. Even the monitor was nice, but monochrome greenish.

 

Definitely a slow but steady computer, with the smell of early 80s! :) Not my first (could have been), but the earliest computer model I have.

The first computer I've probably ever used was a Compaq Presario 5000 running Windows XP. However, my first computer was some HP laptop from 2010 running Windows 7. Wasn't that good of a computer, it died a year after I started using it.

I was always on laptops, first it was my mom's laptop back in the 90's and I finally got my own laptop back in the early 00's, I played a lot of sims 2 on that one.  My brother built the first tower we had in the household back in 2006 or something?  Then when he joined the military, he left me his old tower(it was ok for him since he ended up ordering a custom gaming laptop).  Played a lot of WoW back then on that thing and I kept it until around 2013 or something?  He built it to be intentionally high end for the time it was built in so it lasted a while and I wasn't the type to play a lot of newer games on it.  I ended up getting rid of it around that time because it was so stinkin' old for the games I actually wanted to play.  My mom ended up buying me a laptop, it was ok and sims 3 ran on it fine-ish but it lasted me a long time and I actually still have yet to get that computer recycled or anything like that, mostly sentimental value.  I think around 2015 is when I finally got around to building a good gaming pc and it's still working out for me even though I've since swapped out old parts for new ones.  It's a good pc and I'm glad I built it when I did.  I would love to build a newer one at some point, when I have the money to do so.  My "build-the-best-pc" itch is bothering me mighty fierce these days lol, even if I might have a hard time understanding most pc stuff I still enjoyed building and opening up my tower for maintenance stuff...

Need more nostalgia. You need to get the dosbox version that supports shaders, and get the CRT shader, OMG! Do it!

 

Then when you have had that nostalgia trip, you have to buy an old computer and a real CRT, it is more to this than you can ever imagine :wacko:

Hmm, never saw this :wacko: .

Its a Dell Inspiron. Got mine for college back in 2012. It’s.... mostly still reliable. It has one really persistent problem I can’t fix since last year. Don’t really need a new laptop...

My first computer was an Emachines desktop with Windows 98SE. I can't remember the model but it looked like the one in the pic, even had a yellow tinge since that plastic was notorious for yellowing.

It sucked at playing games, so I only browsed the web with it as a kid. Of course, back then there was only dial up. Damn I sound old saying that
