First 'puter ever was a Sinclair ZX81... soon had the wobbly 16k ram expansion too. Then came the Texas TI99/4A, with speech synth, expansion box, parallel card, serial card, 32k ram expansion, and the best of all, a full height 5 1/4" single sided single density floppy drive man that rocked for ages. After that, an IBM 286 in a case so heavy it could withstand a direct hit from a nuke. Out with 286 board, and in with 386DX.... still using 20Mb MFM hard drive !! Then onward to 486 SX, then to a DX. Next came a Pentium 100, and the jump to IDE hard drives - the first one I had was 40Mb. Been through loads of other stuff since, like P133, P166, Celeron 300, 400, Athlon 750, Athlon 1.1Ghz, and now I have AMD 2400XP, Radeon 9500, 2x 80Gb SATA RAID 0, DVD-RW. Quite a potted history, but it's kept me amused over the years. I know this is quite sad, but I have recently collected loads of retro stuff BBCs, C64s, Atari STFM, Oric, Acorn Electron, Sinclair Speccys etc... Darkside.
