It was genuinely just a question, because I wasn't exactly sure.

Lol.. very first PC was a really slow IBM computer that I played the first Duke Nukem on. This was around '98 or '99 so I wager it was a '95 since It had windows '95 on it. 

But who cares, Duke Nukem!

Dell Dimension 4600... had a 2.8 GHz P4, an old,old video card that i dont even know the name of, and a couple of 80GB hard drives. I had 2GB of RAM that i had found in other, more useless computers.

 

I played my first pc game on this computer. It was lame. It was called Combat Arms lol. If any of u have played it u would know its pretty terrible. I didnt play that for very long. When I was introduced to minecraft, I played that on it. got like 20 FPS lol it was retarded.

 

I also used this machine first to start my minecraft server. It was able to hold about 10 people before crashing, and crashes happened often, CPU was maxed at 100% 24/7 though lol. this problem is what led to me getting my current PC, originally bought from Cyberpower (NEVER AGAIN) cause I had no idea what I was doing, and then upgraded several times. RAM, CPU, PSU, oh and GPU; added some junk hard drives cause im poor

The first computer I have used was one with Windows 3.11. I can't remember the hardware specifications, but I do remember that I really liked Paint. ;)

Our family pc after that (I think) was a 500Mhz discounter pc which was really bad and crashed quite a lot without any reasons. .

One of those old beige flat lying ones often used in schools. with I believe a 15'' CRT on top of it, no clue about specs but was pretty slow and would often shut down due to accidentally blocking the only side exhaust...

I remember having an old Wang 386 back in 1994 (go ahead and make your cracks) with windows 3.1 installed jeez was that slow I didn't even have internet at the time something about the phone lines not compatible with a 33.6 or even a 56K modem at the time I ended up with a Compaq Presario eventually in 1995 then my brother had a friend sleep over and stole the pc and my Sony Trinitron TV and my PS1 (original playstation not the remade mini).

First one I can remember was the Apple IIc.

later a Philips 8086. Came with a 20MB harddisk, and it had a turbo button (which I think made this machine run at a BEASTLY 12MHz, instead pf the more mundane 8)

 

And I'm not even THAT old >.<

Its kinda sad but im still using my first computer right now, An HP Pavillion Dv2000.

I got it in 2006 or 2007 for school and whatnot, but is basically only good for web browsing and watching movies.

I had this cheap laptop I picked up second hand somewhere, but I kept it charging 24/7 for a while, so the battery couldn't hold a charge anymore. A while after that, I got a desktop PC that couldn't do much, but it was cheap and it worked nicely. I got a gaming PC after that, but I kept some parts from the old desktop (screen and an extra 3GB ram wooo)
