My first computer was an Amiga 500, used a Motorola 68000 microprocessor that ran at 7.14 MHz and had 512 KB of RAM.

It was a revolution in computerworld that days :).

Playing games like, bundesliga manager hattrick, kick off2, zack mckracken...

Also lots software was available... 3d, music...

This wasn't my own first computer, technically, but I grew up tinkering around with my dad's IBM Personal Computer XT. I still remember how it had a turbo button that would rocket it all the way from 5 MHz to a blistering 10, how my dad would frequently run repair reinstalls of the operating system (because apparently the hard drive was prone to losing data) with a stack of seventy 5 1/4-inch floppies, playing arithmetic games with ASCII graphics, and learning to program infinite loops in BASIC. Good times.

My first PC was a Corona Portable PC, It was based on an 8088, ran at a whopping 4.77 mhz, had 2 floppy drives, 256k of RAM and a monochrome screen, the keyboard tucked away into the cover that went over the face of the PC.  I later upgraded it to 512k of ram by buying 16 dram dips and plugging them in one by one hoping not to bend any pins.

Wow I never seen like that before. I guess I was not that techy back then.

Does a C64 count? I mean it was a keyboard but still!

 

I can't remember my first desktop, it was an unknown japanese brand and it wasn't great (couldn't run Warcraft 3 etc.) but I was able to play Baldur's Gate and Snes games so it was good enough.

Commodore-64! I remember buying magazine at the smoke shop to teach myself to code. The old computer magazines use to print out code for you, haha

I remember this,  My brother had this one known also as C64 and it became more popular in 1985.

First was an Atari 1040 ST(e), 1MB of RAM and 8MHz, it maybe sacrilege to say this but with hindsight it's kind of obvious a poor cousin to the Amiga.

Guys, I need your help and consultation. What do you think about peo hr solutions software from https://tabulera.com/solutions/solutions-for-peos? It seems like a good idea, but I'm still not sure of it. Has anyone tried applying something like that in your work? I would like to hear your personal experience with that. Should I even bother using it or should I find anything else?
