    This post got me thinking about my first computer – an Acorn Electron – I remember the £200 it cost arriving in £10 notes in a letter from my Grandma as a present. Then excitedly thinking about a ZX Spectrum+ or a commodore 64 (which I really wanted). However my parents wanted something ‘educational’ and as the BBC Model’s baby brother, the acorn electron was what they chose. Still, it was a great starting point for me so all was not lost. However I am making up for lost ground running Commodore 64 emulators on my mac!!

    Wow – my first computer as I recall was am Amstrad Laptop, that only had two floppy drives, one to boot from and one to work from!

    I think it was the one that Noah took with him on his boat 🙂

    Laptop! Wow, my first was an 8086 IBM PC w/ 1 5/25″ floppy and 16k of RAM! Played Zork on that thing all night long. Finally got another floppy for it, so I could finally stop swapping discs every time I wanted to save the game!

    I always wanted one of those fancy Timex Sinclairs or the Tandy TRS-80. But, the IBM had built in basic which was always cool. I never thought about the Apple IIs that the High School had were “real” computers!
