I remember this one so well it was back in the old days when PC first became available for home use. I went and purchased this PC it still had an amber monitor and a 20meg HD. The dealer still said to me in your lifetime you will never run out of disk space :ROFLMAO:

It was back in 2001. Simple-ish PC rig from BTC, Intel Celeron CPU based on Pentium II, 128MB of RAM and it ran Windows 98.

MY first computer would be back in 8th grade...(however many years ago that is)...I worked hard towards some good grades, my Dad helped me buy the parts and eventually later that year had a full system. It wasn't anything crazy but the experience was extremely exciting for me :)

The first PC that I have ever owned on my own was a HP swivel touch screen. The first one that HP made that way. It was probably 2007 or so. Before that it was a IBM tower that my parents bought when I was a kid.

Windows XP, 2GB RAM, ~300GB HDD, no dedicated GPU, and an Intel Core 2 Duo. IIRC.

That drive is still in my current desktop along with the card reader that came with that first one.

It was a pentium 4 pre-built computer with windows 98 installed. Don't actually remember the exact specifications as this one is already almost 20 years ago.

My first computer was a DELL which I bought around a decade ago. You'll be surprised to know, I still use it and I'm posting this post through it.

What was the first computer you ever owned?
I bought an old Acer Laptop back in 2006. It had Windows XP, 100 GB HDD, 7 GB RAM. I trashed that computer from downloading with Limewire and searching unsafe porn websites.
