Binatone MK10. Then a ZX-80 (which I've still got). Then Vic=20, Speccy, A500, A600, A1200, CD32, then anything I could get my hands on to pad out my collection!

Soviet, to be exact I read that this is very rare. Too bad I can't remember what happened to the one I had

I didn't have much in the way of electronics before I had a computer, but I was always eager to go to friends' houses or stay back after school to use their computers (usually C64s or the BBC Micro in school). My brother had a Tron game similar to Galahad's Grandstand unit, played that to bits. Eventually I got an Atari 800XL, and then moved on to Amigas after that. Had PCs around the same time to but they were horrendous compared to the Amiga unless you spent thousands fitting them out.

First computer - A800 ("Grandfather chipset" ) before that -- atari 2600 ("Great GCS")- before that - cardboard boxes to build igloos out of ( was ~ 5-6 years old when we got the 800..)

I had a Snoopy Tennis Nintendo Game & Watch LCD which, along with going to play on my friend's Commodore plus/4 a lot, had to suffice for our electronic entertainment. Until we got our first computer, a Speccy +2A, and the light dawned in our house!

I had this:



The Casio SG-11, a football game, of course, since I've always been a football fan.

What fond memories... I remember that I broke it playing for hours in a sunny day...

However that wasn't the first videogame I've played with... I already had a ZX Spectrum 81 and the Commodore 64... then, about 4-5 years later I received from my parents the Amiga 500, my greatest (digital) love...

I had this kids v-tech laptop thing which taught you how to spell. Kind of like this, but a different model with a LCD screen:

Pretty horrendous in retrospect.

I had a Casio PB-100 and later a Casio PB-110 that I still keep.

I wouldn't call it a "Personal Computer" as they were doing, would you actually do? I would call it a precursor.

But I liked to make some small Basic programs with them.

this, but with submarine version, was my favourite:


i played with Intellivision in my friend's home, but i didn't have any computer/console: so, I drew sprite on paper and the background too, then I cut and play with them!
When i reach the 10, my parents gave to me an used C64, my first home computer: it was 1985

I first had Firefox, then later on Star Force (also by Grandstand). I loved these games

[ Show youtube player ]

My brother found them in my parents loft a few years ago and blew them up by using some random power adapter on them
