    Its funny how you can tell how old someone is by the device they deemed awsome. I remember when the original gameboy came out. It was huge, square, and didn't have color but I thought it was the coolest thing around.

    I used to have a 286 that had Norton Commander on it. It was a hand me down and out of date even then, but it rocked because it was MINE! I burned a lot of hours playing leisure suit larry 2 and police quest, ...using a land line to hit BBS's...*sigh*

    First love and most awesome would have to be my Atari 2600 but I was blown away when I was able to actually "go on the world wide web" and play the Sega Dreamcast.

    we've had several models of TRS-80s, Intellivision, Ataris, NES, Sega... i inherited an AT&T 6300 (8086) from my dad as my first personal computer... but all of those toys were bought for the family or other reasons...

    the first device, that I owned, that i worked to get myself, was an Atari Lynx. THAT thing was bad-assed. too bad it sucked through 6 AAs in about 2.5 hrs.

    my next favorite device was a Compaq iPaq 3635. i used that thing for nearly 6 years before the battery and sync cable stopped working.
