    My first computer came from Lowe's (yeah, they actually used to sell computers!). It was a Compaq desktop with a 1GB HDD. It could play some dumb pirate game (I think it was text based) and took about 20 minutes to turn on. We had AOL when it first came out and getting online took no less than 22 minutes. I remember waiting for exactly that long just so I could check the AOL keyword "skateboarding" back when I was a skater. Those were the days.

    Cosmac ELF using an 1802 processor, hex keypad and hex readout. Like many of the era, you had to solder the parts down yourself.
    It was fun.

    Amazing isn't it? 256K Ram and 10MB HDD! WOW.

    First hard drive I had was a whopping 30MB which was an external for my Atari 1040 ST then a 40MB in my first home made 80286 PC with a whole MEG of RAM!!! I figured I would never run out of room!

    Hehe, my dad still uses a slide rule on occasion.

    He is the only person I've ever met that knows how to use one properly.

    I still have the TI-30... and while the buttons stick a little now and then, it still works just fine.
