Hello!

 

This is a bit of a random request, and I have to admit, slightly lacks true purpose other than giving me mental satisfaction...

 

I am hoping someone with a good eye, and a history with computers will be able to be my angel here.

 

I recently found a photo of my very first computer, a Windows PC, from some time in the latter half of the '90's.

 

If nothing else, can someone identify what the PC company logo is in the front panel of the unit? 

 

 

Thank you for taking your time to read my aimless, nostalgia-fueled request,

 

-HungryEyes

Gateway 486 my guess. I am pretty sure of the brand and fairly sure of the model.

That is a Packard Bell Legend 2CD 486SX-33. The white wavy panels in the front and speakers on the side of the monitor was a dead giveaway.

Thank you technonymous! 

 

Finally, I can put a name on the first PC I've used -- as silly as that may sound.

 

Much appreciated!
