Hi my friend, I got my first computer after I got my disability award. They owed me for almost a year back pay and it sure came in handy. That was about 11 years ago and my son was about 15 then and we shared the computer. It was not fun back then. We took turns. Then my fiance moved in and then there was 3 of us which was even worse!! Now, I have my own, hubby has his own, and when my son moved out last month he has his own laptop. It makes a much happier household when you don't have to share the computer.

I bought my first Commodore 64 in 1983 at Consumers Distributing. Went on to later purchase the printer, modem, monitor, cassette deck, and later, a portable 64. All which I still have and I still use the monitor!

i got my first computer somewhere around '97. A good ol' Pentium II, 32Mb of ram, 2Gb hard drive, and Windows 95. It was wonderful especially since it was given to me. i owe all my knowledge pertaining to computer repair to that lil' computer. Since it crashed on a daily basis and the fact that eventually i had to upgrade everything about it. It left an indelible mark on me. And a hatred for all things Microsoft.

So you are very happy now ! Good for you. I got my computer about two years ago. I didn't know what kind I should buy then. Just took the advice from the shop. I am happy with it. Ofcourse, there are many options I know now. I might change to another later on. Have a nice day. Enjoy your computer !

Well my dad has been a computer manager since i can remember, from when i was very young anyway (i'm 25 now) so we have always had computers in the house. remember we had a 186, then 286, 386, 486 then it went on to pentiums and beyond, but i remember playing really basic games like frogga on that 186 pc. Computers didn't have Windows then of course but MS-DOS mode only so i first learnt to use a computer watching my brother type in DOS to access programs. For a long time we just had two comptuers, one my dad would use and one for me and my brother to share, i would have been a teen before i had my own computer rather than having to share.
