    That would be the original IBM PC, most likely. I'm thinking model 5150.

    I found a C128 a few years ago in the trash. Used it for awhile when I was living at my last place, but since I downsized I had to throw stuff out that I wasn't using. Found out it wasn't worth much, and didn't have time to try to find a buyer for it since it was only valued at $30 or so. So back into the trash it went. Kinda wishing I kept it, feeling nostalgic. After moving into my new place, I realize that I actually have room in the closet for it, and I could have just brought it out and hooked it up from time to time. Sort of sad that I got rid of it now, as i'll probably never come across another one just sitting in the garbage; and even if I do, I threw out my 9 cases of floppy disks for it; so I would no longer have any games. Now i'll be up the rest of the night trying to find a decent emulator for the PC and some old game favorites.

    Too many to quote but...first computers I remember messing with in school were an Apple2, playing Oregon Trail.
    second computer was a Tandy (can't remember which line) , and for computer class we programmed like this :10 goto 20, 20 print Boo,30 goto 40,...or similar and the whole thing was you had whatever the word you wanted displayed, it would print super fast on the screen.I was given my grandfathers old Vic20 when I was around 10, along with some games. I never got to play any mainly because the "HDD" was a slow a$$ tape player! Had to load each tape ,let it run through,flip it , rinse and repeat..just said screw it and went outside to play! My first computer game I bought was a 5.25 dbl pack...Frogger and wing commander. Guess some of you are older..
    Care to guess just how old I really am? Hahahahaha

    Oh..and my first console system was older than the 2600....

    Sort of amazing when you consider that our PHONES can run emulators for systems that are exponentially more powerful than the systems we used to rely on daily. (for the record, I am 37)

    My first gaming console was the Atari 2600, followed by the original nes. I remember how picky that thing was, having to blow on the cartridge, then jig it up and down, up and down. Oh, and once you got it running, you made sure not to touch it or it would stop working again.

    Since we have an age guesser, how old am i?
