My first computer was an Atari 800 with 48K, running at 0.77 MHz, 320x240 pixel screen resolution on a television screen and a 300bps modem, with 5-inch floppy drive that stored 180k per disk...
My first PC
was an IBM PC
-XT with an 8088 processor running I think at 4.77 Mhz with 640K, running MS
-DOS 2.1, and a 10MB hard drive, Hercules graphics (640x480, no color).
I've collected all the processors for every computer I've owned since (pulled them out of the computer after the computer was retired): an 80286-12Mhz, 80386-25Mhz, 486DX2-75Mhz, Pentium-133Mhz, Pentium II
-333Mhz, and Pentium III-850MHz. My current computer is a real pokey-slow Pentium III-850 with 512M RAM running Windows 98, with a 120GB hard drive.
I don't know how much this is worth as you can't read the 5 inch floppy disks with any of the new computers out there: I have the install disks for Microsoft Windows 1.01 which fit on 4 360k 5-inch floppies. 3 disks for the Windows operating system and 1 disk for the Microsoft Write program, which evolved into the present day WordPad program...
And the upgrade, Microsoft Windows 1.03, which has an additional disk with drivers for the new hardware that was developed betwen 1.03 and 1.01.
Now Windows, well you all know, need a whole CD
