My first computer was an Apple IIe. Although I had a Commadore 64 as well (I'm not sure which one I got first that was over 20 years ago!).

Fat mac. Later it was upgraded to a Mac Plus. It's in my garage gathering sawdust. But it's got 1MB of RAM!

But had a Apple II+ long before that. My dad was actually one of the proud owners of an Apple III. *snicker*

I'd used macs at school and for graphics work but I never had any desire to own one until OS X came out. I saw unix that actually had a usable desktop and I later purchased a Ti powerbook 800mhz. As a matter of fact I still own it and use it for network administration. The only issue I've ever had with it was the hard drive going bad and the cd drive wearing out. I replaced both and it's still alive and kicking. I've never had a PC laptop last this long.

First computer was a DOS, no Macs yet. But think about when companies ctually release a 1TB HDD, Seagate already has a 750GB on NewEgg. I used an ancient (at least for me) PC that was DOS that had an emormous 2GB HDD and 16MB of RAM that was at my grandma's house given to her by my aunt who upgraded to a true performance machine with a 166MHz Pentium, 10GB HDD, 32MB RAM, and ir ran 98 SE. The first I ever used at home was a DOS later upgraded to 95 that had a legacy laser printer hooked up to it and a 33Kbps modem, blazing 10Mbps RJ-45 port not much else I remember about it other than using it to play few games, play around in paint, and go online that only cost us $30 a month for internet only no email (tht was another $15) and it had a time limit of a generous 300 hours.

First Mac was a Mac Classic. It came with a whopping 2MB RAM. I thought I was king of the computer jungle when I upgraded it to 4MB. Remember using MacWrite and MacPaint?

Next came the Power Macintosh 6100/60 AV, the very first Power Macintosh computer. I loved that machine -- a bit ahead of its time with its Audio/Visual options. And, with the addition of a NewerTech 225MHz G3 processor upgrade, I was able to keep it around a couple of extra years.

My first home computer was a TI-44 with a CASSETTE drive and solid state ROM cartridges for programs. Hooked up to the TV. I was like in 4th grade when dad brought that beauty home.

But when it comes to Macs, my Mac Mini is my first model. Bought it last week and lovin' it ever since.

My daughter (5yro) calls it the Mac'n'cheese Computer.

What? no original imac owners?

I had a used ClassicII that I bought used at college. The guy who sold it to me was graduating so he sold it with a dot matrix printer, an big carrying bag, a bunch of software and even a mouse pad for $100. (this was in spring 1996)

Since then I have gone through 5 PCs I think. Now exactly 10 years after I am returning to mac.

I used a bunch of original imacs at college, they where nice but the monitor were too small, only 14".
