"Schneider CPC 6128" aka "Amstrad CPC 6128" the famous successor and "son" of the CPC 464 and CPC 664
Z80 A (4.7 MHz)
Floppy (3", yeah no typo, 3")
Locomotive Basic (or CP/M or Borland Pascal or simply machine code)
128 KB RAM (organized as benches of 16KB each, switcheable as the cpu could only address 64KB range, an upgrade to 512 KB would have been possible as well as "slot modules")
My former motherland GDR rebuilt that computer entirely with the name KC/83 with exactly the same parameters and they offered a 16KB memory module at the size of a discman containing a basic variant. Another guy even ported fortran to that machine.
but the first computer I was allowed to put my hands on was a poly 880 (powered by U880 cpu an east german clone of the Z80 from Zilog at about 2 MHz), 16 KB RAM, an 8 Element 7 segment LCD Display and just a keyboard with numbers from 1-9 and a to f ok and four more buttons
funny that at about the same time in 1984 some other students where coding in C already, I think I missed that way as I realized the existence of unix first in 1989 (to be honest then I just heard of it) :-)

Have a nice day
All decision is left to your taste
