    Memory Lane - Old Computers
    MSN has a picture gallery of old computers, some worth over $10,000 today.

    I had a Tandy once, but I can't remember if it was the same one in the picture.

    How did they leave -

    off the list? That's the one I had and used in school. Commodore 64 was also popular at the time, that one made the list.

    Yes, the Atari made big a impact back then. I had a Commodore 64, and before that, the Commodore VIC-20. I recall friendly rivalries among home computer users: "My Atari is better than your ol' Commodore." Or, "My TI is the best!"

    However, my very first computer was a Timex-Sinclair, a British-made computer imported by the Timex Watch Company. It had 2 KB of ram - WooHoo! --->

    I also had a Tandy, before I realized what a hard drive was. I was so impressed by the SOFTWARE on the big 5 inch floppies, I was sold. LOLOL!

    My first one, I can't remember what it was. I'm thinking Tandy but not sure. All I remember is having to type in/transcribe from a code book to record programs onto a cassette tape.

    One of the "Video games" consisted of crude stick-figure horse race. There was no interactive way to "play" the game; you just fire up the cassette tape and watch the horses run; there will be a random winner.

    The first computer I used at work was a Friden Flexowriter-Computyper nearly 35 years ago. The last time I saw one it was in pieces in a storage room at Singer headquarters.

    The first home computer I owned was an Apple IIc. The first Windows machine I owned was a 286.

    My very first computer was a Commodore 64, then I moved onto the Commodore 128 and thought I was hot stuff.

    Heck, when I was a kid and decided to learn about computing, I went straight for the big dog, I sort of helped myself to Indiana University's mainframe, a CDC 6600, as I recall. After a few months, they caught on to what was going on, and, errr, my summer ended poorly.

    After that, our high school picked up a couple of radio shack computers, the one's that had 4K of memory, and I learned on those. I do have fond memories of those little computers, though, at the time it was eye opening, even though they could not do a whole lot.
    Following everyone else is a GREAT way to become average.
