My first PC was an 8086 with no hard drive and 640K RAM.

It had a hercules monitor, and the only game I had for it was an ASCII Air Traffic Control strategy style game.

The year was 1980... it was made by NEC. This thing come out just after 'kit computers' you had to make your own. The NEC PC had 8KB of RAM and it could only display ASCII characters. Had to buy a special add-on board to display more characters. You could only mate it to a green monitor and it had no HD... you load it from an audio cassette tape. Took about 3 to 6 min for each app to load. And, no app switch. You had to switch the PC off and load a new app. What a fun time that was... NOT!!! huh hahaha

I'm not sure of the specifications of the first computer I used (I was only 4-5 years old) but I remember it was a Windows 95, and I played Commander Keen, Pinball, Cosmo's Cosmic Adventure, and a lot of other Atari DOS games on it I wish I could find the software again, but I remember my little brother breaking the disc in half... :'(
