The first computer I ever used was 80826 about the time I was 5 or 6, though about the same time I occasionally played on Commodore 64.

Wow man, I didn't realize you were so old. Your sportin OG-PC That's awesome you had a sinclair. Here's a pic of my first computer, the Atari 1200XL. I don't remember everything we had with it, but it was the pretty sweet at the time. Until my cousin got a Commodore 64 that played Donkey Kong....and I'm not sure it did much else. The Atari was sick. 64k RAM

I have more memories of my 2nd computer, which was the original Mac. It was my first introduction to a GUI. Also it had a Hayes 300 baud modem. That's right bitches....300 bps was off the hook. Aw man...as awesome as the Atari was, the Mac was lightspeed compared to it and had better GFX on it's games. Still that commadore 64 Donkey Kong was a boatload of fun.
