C=64 with a tape drive and a black&white TV.

I still remember 'randomly' dying in the swimming level in game Aztec Challenge - you didn't really see the piranhas unless you had a color TV It was a year or two later that I finally saw what the problem was

I still have it somewhere, I even bought an SDIEC & a Final Cartridge recently - both are still waiting for any real use ...

ABC 80, VIC-20 and C64 (in that order). Already past my teens when Amiga was released, but loved it, and still do.

I grew up on the MSX and then for most of my youth the Amiga 500, but what got me interested in computing in the first place were the old Atari consoles. The first thing I owned myself was as a youngster was an Atari 2600. Those were some good times.

This poll seems to be way too limited in options (:

Either way, my first computer was a Mac Quadra 610, as far as I remember.

kinda feel old as my first computer isn't in the poll lol. I had the ZX81 with 16k Rampack. Then ZX Spectrum 48k. From that to Amiga 500 then A1200.

On my ZX81 I use to love inputting programs from Sinclair User and other magazines. My first taste of BASIC. And first time debugging when some listings had bits missing or the print was blurred.

Then there was my first experience of being scared witless by 3D Monster Maze!

Spectrum ZX. I think the first game I ever saw on it was space invaders. It was love from first sight ;p I was probably 4-5.

Atari 2600 VCS - gaming: anything I managed my parents to buy for me... Pac-Man, Defender!, Pitfall, ftw!

Atari 800 (Rainbow effect yay!, Hubbard making music for Warhawk, yay!). My best mate had a C64 so we both start digging into 65xy asm, a bit of gaming (Atari: Rescue on Fractulus, Koronis Rift, Bruce Lee on tape, Pitfall2 on Disc or Cartridge. C64: Ghostbusters, Spellbound, Elite all on tape, iirc).

Amiga 500, coding in m68k, doing GFXs, some music ripping + a bit of tracking (gave it up realizing I had no talent;-), gaming: Frontier (recently dug out the box and reread the story and the gazeteer coming with it), Bard's Tale (speedrun with my cousin), Ambermoon, Realms of Arcania). First: stock Kick1.2, then upgraded to switchable Kick2.0 and 1.8M slowmem expansion.

Intel Pentium, 90Mhz, ET4000 Gfx board, came preinstalled with MSDOS but soon to be replaced with a Slackware Linux running X-Windows. Mostly programming, muds, nethack...
