Packard Bell? Ouch... that brings back reallly bad memories. Never owned one myself, but knew people who did and needed my help with them. What nightmarish things they were! I strongly suspect that if my first PC had been a PB, I would have switched to Macs loooooong ago!


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

Probably not. Even the humble 8088 and 8086 ran at 4.77MHz. Now, if you were talking about a Commodore 64 or an Apple ][, which ran MOS 6502 CPUs, you might be right. But as far as I know, Packard Bell has always been a PC clone manufacturer.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

My first computer was a Vic 20.....I wore that thing out!

My first REAL computer was a Tandy 386SX/25 with a whopping 2mb of RAM and an 80mb HD. I remember thinking that I'd never fill up an 80mb HD.

I even remember seeing a double height 5 1/4" IBM hard drive which a whopping 10mb storage capacity! If you can remember the old 5 1/4" floppy drives with the flip down drive door, that's the same size as the HD I'm thinking of.

Now I carry hundreds of times more storage in my pocket on a daily basis.

What's a hard drive? Is the first thing I asked when I heard the word. Cause my first computer Apple 512K didn't have a hard drive. Just a master floppy for the internal slot with the system on it and a external floppy drive for any programs you wanted to run.

recycle it. it's sure to have all sorts of nastiness in there.

i stayed away from computers for a long time - intentionally. had absolutely zero interest in owning one til about 1996 or so - got a dell with a PII 300mhz and 12 Gb hd (and windows 95 - yuk!).
and now i'm in computer operations; go figure.
