category: general [glöplog]
C64 (still use it)
-> 486
-> Amiga 500 for about a year (borrowed)
-> Pentium 200 MHz (crappy OEM)

->Apple II (Am I the only one ? =)
->486DX2 (Best memories)
->Celeron 400Mhz (e-machine =P)
->Self-built AMD Duron 1.4Ghz machine, 512mb rdram, Geforce4Ti, etc,etc,etc

In between I used some really old bulky laptops from the early/mid 90's (Damn, did I really hate those)

Now, I probably code the most for my Ti-89 and Ti-85 calcs =)

Really old bulky laptops? Boy, when I were young the laptops weighted more than today's tower models.
..like the Toshiba T-3100 I started with in 86 and that was modern and lightweight..

I recently "bought" my first C64 back, was interesting to see it again, i felt like "Hi. Long time no see, dude." :)
Which is more extreme that my brother once came home with a huge box, and said "My friend kept this in the cellar, he said it was only taking the space and used it as a shelf-holder box". I opened it, just to find a complete C64 kit. (Breadbox, floppy, datasette, all the cables, a lot of disks, etc.) ..."Arrrrr, we gettin' treasure 'ere!" :)
