Around 1993 we had a Tandy 1000. 2 floppy drives, no HDD, the OS was on a floppy disk. I was about 6 at the time, so I don't remember much about it.
At about the same time, we got an IBM 286 equivalent (I can't remember the brand) I know it had a 4MB HDD, big and small floppy drives, and it actually had VGA ! We used that for a couple years. It had some classic games on it...
When Win 95 came out, we got an AST computer which we used for (omg) 6 years (or until the 1.9 Ghz P4). 1 Gig Hdd, 8 Megs of ram, 166Mhz P1, 8x CD-ROM. We upgraded it to 64 Megs of ram, a 10 gig drive (2 of it usable) and Win 98. I ripped out (literally) the 10 gig drive and floppy drive when I made my new machine.
At the advent of Win 98, my mom got a Toshiba laptop that we (I) still use today. 266Mhz P1, 4 Gig drive, 24x Cd drive, 32 MB ram (upped to 98Mb). It is now my test machine, and has run Win 98, Win 98 SE, Win XP (heavily tweaked), and Red Hat Linux.
After that, we waited until Win XP had been out for at least a year before getting a brand new HP Pavilion 761c, with typical new (as of 2001) stuff.
Well, that was nostalgic! You're turn!
