A Commodore C-64 Homecomputer with no Harddisk 64 KB RAM and a cassette-drive and playing Pac-Man like hell :D

I remember the day 4mb of ram upgrades ate your wallet!

And the last of the large floppy disks. We moved to micro in 1993.

I recall many yrs ago, my first pc IBM 8088 with no hard drive and boots up off the a drive and runs programs on the b drive. I think the memory is like 64k total. and a color monitor was over 300 us dollars I still got it. I then owned a 80286 80386 and 486 and then a Pentium 333 and then a celeron 433 HP.. I remember as a kid playing pong and thinking Asteroids would satisfy me my whole life.

What a trip down memory lane cheapy

Think I started on Apple II's when I was 13 (some 23yrs ago :eek: :) ... Black screen no gui, no hdd, 5inch floppy, no mouse and every command was something like "poke 12684,128" or something like that... I was master of a game called Norad (nuke missile thing) and the fastest typist in school :D
