I loved this thing. Despite it being one of the most ill-advised machines Commodore ever made, I learned so much from it.

I remember those. the original "We aren't even trying to pretend this isn't a shitbox" company, before eMachines did it.

anyway the first machines we had in the house were some beige-toaster mac (an LCII? Something?) and a generic 386 running Windows 3.11 that my dad used for work and I used for Skifree and Klotski. This was like... '92 or so?

The first machine I could call my own was a Pentium 2 somewhere around '98 or '99.

I had the exact same machine and peripherals. It was the family computer.

Pentium 60mhz, 512mb HDD, 8mb RAM, IIRC. It got some upgrades over the years.

The first machine I had that was MINE was a scratch+dent eMachine with a Celery 500. I still have the mono around somewhere.

>>51596743
Sheeeit nigga, that was my cousin's computer back in the day to the T. We played all kinds of games on it, particularly the ones that came with it (3D Dinosaurs and 3D Body IIRC). Also some Living Books software, our favorite being Ruff's Bone.

My first was an apple 2 my mom gave me. I just remember trying to click on the shit that would fly around the screen when the screensaver would play.

I think it was the screensaver at least

Yep. Eventually got a Pentium 90 (can't remember where), 2GB HDD, and 16MB RAM before it was retired. Played Heretic, Doom, and a bunch of D&D RPGs. Even played Duke Nukem via modem with a buddy.

>>51600797
The office I started working at when I was 18 had some old HPs that had those same specs. There were 4 or 5 of us young guys there and they made the mistake of giving a couple of us keys. What that meant was Saturday was designated office LAN party day.

Christ what a piece of shit. It was cheap as hell though, I was just a 15-year-old poorfag back in the summer of 1998. This isn't my pic but I was amazed someone else out there actually bought this turd.

Can't find a picture of it.

Was a PowerSpec from MicroCenter that my uncle got my for Christmas in 2001. Came with the case and everything in it, keyboard, mouse, speakers and monitor.

Single-core 1,8 Ghz, 1GB SD-RAM, 40GB HDD, 64MB VRAM. Have had Comcast ever since then, fuck dial-up.
