i just turned 39 last month and i grew up when the pc was really in its infancy stage. the only true pc was the IBM and there were no windows, DOS was the operating system. it was around \'82 when i got my first computer, a comodore 64 and the graphics really blew away the IBM. i can still remember being into the system that included the keyboard, disk drive, modem and tape drive for around $1000, it just plugged into any tv set. it was the dawn of the early ststems that included the apple IIe(the very first windows type OS), atari 2600 gaming console, 5200, 800, colecovision and the commodeore family of the 64 and VIC. i then upgraded to an atari 520ST in the later 80\'s right when IBM clones began to emerge. i remember compaq was one of the really early players in the IBM clone market
nowadays you really cant find a true IBM and the word clone is really nonexistant. Atari and commodore is extinct and apple is playing second fiddle to the \"clones\" there are $250 laptops that are more powerfull than the fully blown systems of the 80\'s.
just thinking of the yesteryears and how the PC has really emerged.
I still remember those computer that my dad used to work on it in he\'s office..!!it such really a huge desktop..!!
