    first computer:

    Timex Sinclair got in 1984 or so, pecked in a lot of BASIC programs,
    never got a tape drive for it.

    then:

    ColecoVision ADAM........can't remember if I had to plug my ColecoVision
    game console into it....I think the ADAM had a cartridge slot
    itself....so I should have just bought the ADAM first.......I should
    have bought a Commodore 64 instead......

    then:
    RadioShack Color Computer, CoCo, bought used for $20 at a yard sale. It
    had a 5 1/4 drive.

    then:
    Tandy 1000HX bought in 1988(?).......bought for $600 brand
    new........8088(?) cpu, no hard drive, 3.5 diskette drive....ran MS-DOS
    with a sort of Radio Shack GUI layered onto it, no mouse.....I should
    have bought the mouse.....wrote college papers on it......

    then:
    Macintosh Plus bought used for $120 in the early 90's..........wrote
    papers on it..........

    then:
    big leap,
    bought a Pentium 133mhz Windows 95 system in 1996 for $800 brand
    new.......first time on the internet......

    in 1999 sold this to my cousin and then bought a Cyrix 266mhz system
    brand new for $300 or so from a mom and pop shop.......sold in 2000 to a
    friend for $250

    in 2000 bought an AMD 333mhz system brand new for $400, then sold to my
    sister in 2001......

    in 2001, bought a 450mhz Compaq Deskpro EN used off ebay for $90. Then
    bought a used Dell 450mhz P2 shortly after........then an HP Vectra of
    about 800mhz speed in 2003......in 2004 bought an AMD 2.2 gigahertz
    system brand new.....in 2005 bought an HP e-pc 900mhz small form factor
    PC used for $80 off ebay.........still have the last 2
    computers...................
