    Hand me down HP desktop. Though i bought an older computer from a guys big brother at school, used my birthday money when i was like 14. I dont know what it was but i wish i had kept it. He told me it was for making music I remember floppy disks and managing to load up kick drum samples (i only know this through hindesight, as then i had no idea what was going on with it) but i was so young and no internet to look it up that i gave up with it. i wonder what it was. Really wish i kept it. Looked more like an amstrad but was white. was so long ago now

    Looking at pics on google images i think Amiga. My biggest regret is not learning how to use it and keeping it. I think thats why the guy sold it too, he was prob 18, there was no internet as such to find out how to use it. no manual, i remember being so intrigued by it. few years later we got the HP from an aunt and uncle. I could run ReBirth on it and did until we got a newer comp some years later and my dial up and Morpheus had me finding TeamAir releases of cubase and wavelab which is when i started to make sense of it all. though everything sounded terrible haha.

    Fully Loaded Apple IIe but learned how to code on Radio Shack TRS 80's

    My first experience with. "home computing " was at a friend of my dads, he worked at General Atomic and had a teletype with an. old school phone modem IE phone in the cradle I played American Football in a text-based game printed on paper with the mainframe at General Atomic (mind was blown). Of course a few years later I learned the game was nothing more than an RNG and had nothing to do with skill but I still played it hours on end and the printouts adorned the walls of my bedroom for many years. this was mid 70's i think

    C16 Plus 4

    I remember the very first music I heard from a computer was when somebody made a script for the Plus 4 and if you ran that script the CD reader started to make "music" so the reading head was moving and made "melodies" it was freakin funny.

    Something similar like this but mine was much more funnier:
