A ZX Spectrum 48k, which I got when I was four years old, mostly used for adventure games like Dizzy, although when I was five years old I did play around with the BASIC examples in the manual and made a game called Pyramidz, involving Pyramids and crawly spiders and not very exciting gameplay. But still, it was a start, and no doubt if I had kept it up I would be a really good programmer right now. Sadly it came to an end when someone spilt orange juice all over the keyboard, and my parents pawned the games and bought me games consoles instead. I didn't get my next proper computer (Amiga 500+) until I was 12 *sniff*
