My first computer was...
Hmm, doesnt say 'first owned' .. first used would have to be the Acorn Electron (BBC Micro-alike, why isnt that on the list?), that dad bought for the family in 1983. Tape drive, and BASIC, of course. Recently I picked it up from home, bought a new power-box, and can now use it by attaching it to my TV-card.. (Acorn Electron games in a TV-window on Linux :)
.oO( And I wish I knew where the Elite tape got to, *sigh* lots of other games, but not that.. Anyone have one by any chance? Yup, lots online as ROMs, but I need a tape :)
First owned was a P1-133, most of which is still doing service in various computers. I have a Commodore PET lying around at my parents too (bought for a fiver..)
