I guess I'll show my age with this one. A commodore 64. Then I got an Amiga 500. I had three games for the Amiga, gunship, pirates and hunt for red october. I could get a good 3-4 hours on hunt for red october before it would lock up. Those were the simple days of computing!

Ahhh.... our first FAMILY computer was an Apple IIe, then after a few years, we upgraded to a 200Mhz Celeron computer..... After that, I got MY first computer from my cousin. His work was doing Y2K upgrades, and they were tossing out mountains of boxes... It was a 100Mhz Pentium, that has the 'evergreen upgrade' or something, up to 133Mhz, 72 Megs of RAM, and a 6 Gig hard Drive, and a 16" CRT. I upgraded it with a Soundblaster AWE Gold 64 ISA sound card.... lol, this thing still runs today, and actually has Windows 2000 Pro on it. lol. I had it running a few days agoto see what I had on there.
