Well, at least my first had a whopping 4MB of RAM. It was a Dell 486 SX 25. That's 25 MHz and (I think) a 120MB hard drive. Could have splurged a few hundred more for the 33MHz with 8MB RAM. But hey, Windows 3.11 flew on it. I almost got a 386 machine at the time, but I wanted faster.... lol.

Oh yeah, it came with a free year of Prodigy... woohoo! I thought a 14.4kbps modem would be the best investment of my life.
