I first used an RM Nimbus at school with Pagemaker 2 but I can’t really count that as I didn’t know what I was doing on it.
So discounting the above my first computer was the Macintosh II vx, a lovely little beast that was the blame for my love of Macs.
What was your first and do you look back in fondness?

My first computer ever was an anonymous Intel 386 I got about 15 years ago when I was about 7.
But my first REAL computer was actually my first Mac: a PowerBook I bought two years ago.
Now, I keep wondering what I had used before…they weren’t computers, they were just dull little boxes… 😉
Found you through Steve P. Sharpe’s website. 🙂
Well, if you’re counting your first encounter with a computer that got you hooked, I’d have to name and shame that damned Commodore 64 my dad got when I was 8! There were a few games on there that got me interested at first but I then thought I should try making a game as well. That’s when I started developing/programming.
We then got our first PC in 1991 compliments of my (then rich) uncle from Japan.
If you’re talking first piece of kit that I personally owned, it would have to be my trusty Fujitsu my Dad bought me before I went to uni in 1999. It’s still in operation down in Aberystwyth keeping my sis-in-law busy with her uni coursework and is about to receive the WiFi upgrade. God bless that PC – we’ve had some journeys over the last 6 years or so. *sob*
