My first computer was an Apple IIGS. I loved it, and still have it packed up in my garage. It had some awesome software, for the times. Music Studio, Marble Madness, Lode Runner.
Years and years ago my father built a Heathkit H87A, which he recently gave to me. I've got all the books, software and hardware and it's all in working order. He didn't have room for it anymore and he just couldn't bring himself to throw it out completely. Someday I may turn it on and take it for a spin, for old times sake.
