Commodore 64 with 2 floppy drives. Put one on top of the other and used cutoff pencils to seperate (for air flow). I had hundreds of floppy disks with games, programs, utilities, etc. This was back in 1983, don't know what I did with it when I moved up to an Amiga 500 in 1990.

My first computer was an Amiga 500. The second one was an Amiga 1200 and thanks to this computer + a Blizzard 1230 expansion card (68030 CPU + 4MByte RAM) + a 68k Macintosh emulator (called ShapeShifter) I made the first contact with the Apple systems (and this config performed very well with the System 7 OS :) ).

My first was a self-assembled Radio-86RK back in 1991, soon replaced with a ZX Spectrum. 2 years later I built my first PC, 386dx40, and another 6 years later moved to the Apple land, starting with blue&white G3 powermac.

Now, 15 years and several macs later, I'm growing discontent with the limitations of the platform and about to build my first hack instead of replacing old Mac Pro with a new one.
