we have a 6 mhz "laptop" with an 8 inch monochrome widescreen (!) display.
like 512kb ram... 20mb hard drive...
(our first computer! ^^ ) I remember my dad would get pi$$ed because me and my brother would record audio (.wavs) and literally filling the hard drive. Sad stuff.

then our 25mhz 486(DX!) with 4mb ram. 125mb hd...

both still work, last time I checked.

My dad has a working IBM 8086. I think he bought it in '83. Or maybe '85. I can't remember. It's kinda neat, obviosly not his primary system.

Pretty sure it was 8086, but I could certainly be wrong on that, in fact you're probably right. He said it was the first personal pc. Ya, '83 sounds right, since I was 5 when he bought it. It has this noisy *** dot matrix printer too. I used to play Zork, the text only version on it. And a four color version of Kings Quest 1. It would take like 30 seconds to load a screen on that one. *sigh* good times.....
