NOW:

  • I have access to other systems, but my primary computer is a 15.4" early 2009 unibody MacBook Pro, 2.66GHz with 4GB RAM (need to upgrade, but haven't) -- http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001P05NJ2/ref=pe_11540_12162570_ae_tit_a1/

  • I'm used to having a desktop and laptop computer, but my desktop computer (Dell XPS) died last summer so I'm stuck with a laptop as desktop replacement until I figure out where I want to blow my money and when.

THEN:

As for what my first computer was, to save time I just copied this from my answer in the "My first computer" thread on **Lockergnome.net** --

  • My first computer was actually my father's Timex Sinclair. Didn't do much with it of merit since I was only 6 or 7 years old.

I started out being a PC user, than I got a Powermac G4 (I'm now on an iMac), and it is very unlikely that I'll be switching back to a PC.

My first real machine was (circa 1977) a Cromemco Z-2 with a Zilog Z-80A CPU that ran at either 2 or 4 MHz, has 64k of RAM, TUART, dual 8" DS/DD floppy drives, CP/M 2.2, Soroc IQ 120 terminal and a variety of printers over time. The Z-2 was a heavy rack-mount enclosure that supported up to 22 S-100 cards and weight close to 50 lbs, more with cards in place. If you're curious what this machine would look like, you can go http://www.thecomputerarchive.com and click "Enter the Archive" then the "Computers" folder and then the "Other" folder. The first Cromemco catalog PDF has the hardware in it. I don't know the Soroc is in anything that I've scanned so far...

As for today, the latest is a Core i7 equipped HP laptop with average specs such as 4 GB, 2x320 GB HDs, 17" display, etc.

I started out with the Commadore64 computer, and now I have an iMac. The commadore64 lasted until the mid 1990's before the disk drive finally broke. Instead of letting me fix it, my brother just threw it in the garbage :(
