Omg, this must make me old, since my first PC was a 16MHz 286 :O
And yes, it was bought when they were almost the hottest tech, 386 was just emerged but cost a fortune.

BBC Micro computer.
Folowed by a Comp my dad got from work that had a dry wipe marker board on one side of the case (To this day I still don't know why).
Then a Packard Bell Spectria (p1 I belive running win 95)
Followed by a Compaq.

The list is so long an embarising I don't wish to expand on it.

I have had a few laptops in there as well but i can't rember any of the names but i still have one knocking around some where I will see if i can dig it out.

I recall an Atari 64xe being bought for my younger bro, which I was hugely envious of, then a couple of years later I got a ZX spectrum for myself.

I think it was around '95 when I got my first PC, a 486 DX2 66. The pentium 90s came out the same year I think, but I could still run Duke Nukem fine, and Quake didn't run so bad. I remember the demos for both games came on one of the first(ish) gaming magazine CDs (They can hold over 600Mb you know!!), and there was a huge debate, sprites vs full 3d -frame loss etc.

Ahhh, the memories (are probably innacurate).
