    Well I am 24. The first computer I ever seen and used was a Mac. I dont remember the model though...whatever the top of the line Mac was in 1992.

    Wasn't it a Quadra? Or perhaps a IIcx? That was back when I was a MacHead, so I know a bit about it.

    Uh, what on earth does that mean? I said IIcx, not IIRC. The IIcx was a successor to the IIci and other II Mac models.

    Dude you are clueless. IIRC is internet short from for If I Remember correctly. Wasn't the Apple Performa available then? it is possible that the Performa was my second mac computer. Back then I thought the Mac was the best thing since slice bread. I vowed never to buy a Windows machine..then it hits me..everyone is using an IBM compatible..the rest is history.

    Okay okay, no need to get huffy. I didn't say anything about you mispelling "Performa" did I? ;-)

    The Performa series was a rebranding effort that Apple used to target home users. They took normal units (the Mac Classic II, LCII, and IIci, I believe--though not too sure on the last one) and labelled them Performa and sold them through consumer outlets.

    What shape was the Mac? Was it pizza-box shaped? Or taller? Or was it all-in-one.

    I used Macs until high school when PCs were just so much cheaper that I could no longer justify the Mac. I was going through Fry's the other day and man do the new ones look sweet! Quite a long way from my old Macs!

    The Macs I had were all-in-one systems. BTW I wasn't being huffy I was just surprised that you didn;t know what IIRC means.

    they also took out the math co-processor. Can't run high-end design software on a Performa. I used a Performa for three years .... couldn't use my copy of Quark at all.

    odd. I could never justify not using a Mac.

    Macs have been able to read virtually any file format from Windows since System 7 came out, and with an emulator you're now 99% compatible with non-gaming software.

    Or If I Recall Correctly, but yes, I'm sure ToolkiT was either joking, ...or trying to draw you out so he could ban you.

    sad to see everyone pitching their Macs.

    When my school system switched to PC's they pitched all of the Macs in the basement. (grrr... )

    I rescued the Macs (LC 580 all-in-one) from the basement and placed them in classrooms as word processing and Internet surfing computers. They were just before PowerPC (System 7) so they trot along on Netscape 3 and old ClarisWorks. Not the most high-tech but they do what they were designed to do

    not a Mac owner myself but I have always enjoyed using Macs.

    I'm 59. Started messing with computers when there were only mainframes. I remember anxiously awaiting the first PC at work.
    My first pDA was a handera but I dropped it so bought a used Platinum. Now I use a Prism. Before that I had a Sharp Wizard. Wish I had the money to get the newest one each time one came out. Guess I'm sort of an electronics junkie. My wife won't even use an ATM machine. She stopped typing when they made typewriters electric!! But I love my PDA and will never be without one.

    I'm 23 as of December 2002.

    First time ever used acomputer was an Apple ][ my dad got (around 1983?) . First programming experience was making the ball bounce across the green screen by copying the entire code out a book.

    First IBM-compatible was a 286 with *4* MB ram, able to run Windows 3.0. First time I actually liked using a computer was when I tried out a Macintosh.

    My first PDA is a Blue Visor Deluxe in 2000, and the first computer I bought on my own is an AMD-K6-2 450MHz, which I'm still using now and regretting for life.

    Lotsa upgrades along the way, inlcuding:

    Monitor, modem, cd-rom, motherboard, speaker cables, processor, graphic card, tower case, and CD-ROM (AGAIN) , because the old stuff kept failing and just very recently my USB ports stopped giving out power. Boo. AArrgh.)

    New upgrades on the way (which is bound to fail within a week or so): mainboard, processor, RAM, graphic card. (This is NOT my Christmas present.. I paid for all these myself.

    BTW, I finally switched from Dial-up to unlimited use ADSL connections (self-financed) !!!



    BTW, wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
    I'm just a dreamer..

    Any of you other older folks wondering why a 23-year old is whining about paying for things themself??!?!?

    Just how long should mommy and daddy be financing their kids? I guess my two little ones are in for a big shock later in life...

    53 as of January 2003. First learned about computers on IBM mainframes in Scouting back in the middle '60's. Everything on punch cards.

    First computer I bought was the original IBM PC. I got the maximum memory you could get - 64K, dual single-side 300k floppy drives, sprang for the extra money to get a Hercules graphics board and the "large" monitor - an 11" orange phospher. Total cost with software was approx. $3300. How times have changed!
