In microsoft.public.cert.exam.mcse, Nerd32768 climbed on a soapbox &\nopined:\n[QUOTE]\nmy first computer was an Intel dual 25MHz 80486 with a 12 inch color\nmonitor, win 3.1, 1200 baud modem, 100MB/400MB hdds, both SCSI, a 2s\nCD-ROM drive with 16 caddies, 64 megs of ram, and a *mouse*. My dad\nbought it for 4200(dont ask me why)\n\nMy dad's first computer was an Ohio scientific model 600, which he\nsoon sold to buy a TRS-80. He sold that after a couple years, and\nbought an IBM-PC(which we still have)\n[/QUOTE]\n\nOh yeah! Well my first computer was a wind-up model with the deluxe\nwalnut case and a kerosene-burning monitor. It had wheels and a hitch, so\nit was considered a "portable". I came with one Ram, and I never bothered\nto upgrade, as I couldn't teach that fuscking ram to remember anything\nbut "baa" and it cost too much to feed.
