    Ah the museum pieces that should be on show.
    My system was a 486, which was a staggering lightning fast:
    CPU 60(ish) Mhz,
    A monstrous 8 megs or RAM
    and a giant 850 meg HDD.
    It had Win 3.1 and I would turn it on, go away make a cup of tea, come back type "Win" ( or something like that )
    I would go away make dinner, come back and with the blistering fast modem speed, spark up Netscape Navigator, .. yes, you guessed it, go away meditate come back and then I was ready to look at the best text with small gifs and jpegs the dub dub dub could offer in 95.
    Waiting for an hour for a 2 meg pron vid to download ..
    *sigh* the good ol' daze :)

    My first PC was running at 150MHz and I believe I had a 2GB hard drive. This is when I bought all the parts and built my first PC

    To be honest I don't remember anymore I do know it was running Windows 3.11 and had 4mb of ram with a 486DX processor. If I had to guess I would say prob around 100mb or less.

    No idea what my Dad's first PC had. It was a 486 running DOS that's all I remember.

    My first was a 2GB HDD in a Pentium II 350MHz machine running Win98. Happy memories.

    My first computer (Compaq Presario) had a tiny 300 MB hard drive, 486 DX 66MHz processor, 4 MB of RAM, 4X CD-ROM drive, diskette drive and a built-in 13" CRT-monitor which ran Windows 3.11 and was later updated to Windows 95.

    First family computer in '97 had a 4 GB hard drive and made very loud clicking (don't think it could install modern Windows with updates :) ). My first computer (laptop) had 80 GB. Hard drives have definitely gotten quieter since then.

    Very first ?

    I think it was about 100mb on my Amiga 1200.
    So great to not have to switch out floppy disks playing Monkey Island 2, that i had to replay it again for the third time. (First time with just one drive, that was a nightmare. Second time with two floppy drives was butter, but a hdd was heaven.

    Now i have over 22TB storage in this pc..
    I got all my favourite movies and tv-shows stored in hd, who would have dreamed about that in the 80's? I loved the small fmv clips in games like lost patrol.
