Some old gateway with Windows 95.

My first computer was an iMac 400mhz dv. 64mb ram, dvd rom, 10g hd, bondi blue.
I went to compusa in 2000 and was so excited. Not because of the mac but because I was going to buy a computer. I had always liked the mac look.

Today, I look back and think how stupid I was to have spent so much freakn money on that pos! I sold it 2 years later for $400. Bad investment.

My parents spent around 2k for our pentium, not the greatest investment either ;].

Ahhh.... C&C Gold Edition.. I remember waking up christmas day and playing that game from the wee hours of the morning in fleece jamies... Good times.
