10 PRINT;"I'm a Headphoneus Supremus!";

First Computer: Punch Cards on an IBM 1620 Mainframe

First PC: Original IBM PC... Had to load DOS from a floppy everytime you turned it on... this was the "deluxe" model... TWO floppy drives.

I can't really remember my first computer, the only thing that comes to my mind is that it was beige, slow, and very basic. I think the first computer that I could really call my own though, was an IBM Aptiva.

The first computer I ever used was a 286, which was my uncles. The first my family owned was a 486 IIRC, we had to get one of our own because my dad was doing reviews about "the internet".

Although - truth be told - my favourite first computers were an Amiga 500 & Amiga 3000.





Awesome little machines. How about this! I used to own one of these. The Tandy 100:

Timex Sinclair 2000 with Z80 processor and whopping 16k of RAM. Those were the good old day

A Mac Classic. I used to do music sequencing on it with Cubase (version 2 or something like that).
