    A Pentium II machine with a grand total of, if I remember correct, 4 GB of hard drive space. It ran the hell out of Windows 3.1 and entertained me for hours on end with Minesweeper and that little Neko program with the animated cat that followed the cursor everywhere --

    The first computer I ever used was a Power Macintosh "InstaTower, Alchemy, Hacksaw" Performa 6400. It was introduced on August 7, 1996 with a PowerPC 603e 180 MHz processor with 16 MB of Ram (Ours had 128 as it was upgradeable to 136) and ran the notorious System 7.

    Sadly I don't remember exactly what it was. But back when my dad bought it before I was born, it was top of the line. By the time I got it, it was so old that everytime I turned it on my screen would be blue for a while. xP

    I think it might have been an HP though. :/
