I also had the same 1st two computers. Got the IIe from Custom Computer Specialists (NY) which is where I tried my 1st mac (original). They also had the HP-150 touchscreen computer. Played with all those computers while my dad took a IIe lesson. When we got home I found out I had chicken pox. Oops.

My first computer of my very own was an Apple IIgs with 5.25 and 3.5 drives.

My first was an Apple IIe with an 80 column card, modem, and 2 disk drives and a MT-1602 Mannesmann Tally dot matrix printer.
The IIe cost $2294 which is $5286 in 2013 money. The printer including a Grappler card, cost another $526.
I purchased the IIe from a Philadelphia department store, Strawbridge and Clothier.


The internet was in it’s infancy.

Mine was an EasyData 486 with Windows '95 installed. Wanted to get on
the internet with it but the dial up was so slow it was a painful experience.
Was probably not the best way to spend $1500 back in the day.
