I remember buying my first comouter.. An 80286 with 16 MHz and 1 MB ram
It came standard with a 20 MB HDD, and I opted for the upgrade to 40MB.
The guy in the computer shop told me I was crazy, as no one needed 40mb, and that I wouldn't fill it in my whole life!!!

Haha, I had 3 Amigas, that were awesome for their time. Had true multitasking for 5 - 6 years before 'IBM & compatibles' did

Oh and in personal news I got a freakin cool new hat!

It's an apple product.. no manual, no user replaceable batteries, you just have to work it out as you go along. At least now there is the internet to help figure things out...

Congrats.

Ohh I beat you and I'm younger :p 8086 with 7 or 8mhz and 5 and a quarter floppies x 2!

Oh and in personal news I got a freakin cool new hat!

Congrats! Best purchase ever, has infinite upgrade path but requires no sleep and much love :)
