Ok, so what's the oldest system you've ever owned or had the privlidge of using?

Well I'm not too special but I've used a IBM PCjr.

My first computer was a Texas Instruments TI-99/4A, also used cassette tapes to store information (it did have a cartridge drive for space invaders though).

Commodore Vic20 baby! With the 16k expansion cartridge I was kicking ass and taking names!

My first computer was a TRS-80 PC-1 Pocket Computer in 1976. It came with only 1.5K of RAM, which 1424 bytes of it was usable for Tiny BASIC programs to run on it's Intel 4004 processor. It had a one line, 16 character LCD display and micro chicklet keyboard. It ran off of two watch batteries and it cost me $250. I bought the tape drive base for it so I could load and store programs on cassette tape. I eventually upgraded by getting the printer which used cash register tape rolls for paper. I still have it and it still works. After a few years, I upgraded to a "REAL" powerful machine, the Commodore VIC-20.

The oldest computer I had (OK, my parents had because I was the only one [and still am] in my family who understands computers) was a TRS-80 Model III w/ a cassette tape drive. Thank God for hard drives!
