in reply to My first computer was...

An Apple II with 16K RAM, no floppy (used a Panasonic tape recorder to save programs and data). Upgraded to 48K, 2 floppy drives, Apple monochrome monitor, IDS Paper Tiger Printer, Kensington external fan, Z80 card to run CPM (from Microsoft?) and a paper punch to use floppies on both sides (a notch on the side of 5.25 floppies allowed writing; drives had one head only so you could flip the disk and use the other side... great savings!!!) The best programs: Visicalc (spreadsheet, just in case) and Apple World, a 3D drawing program in 38K! (the other 10L were used by the disk operating system)
