    1985 from an IBM XT based system . . . I've been pulling systems apart and building them since the 1990s.

    Started in 1979 with a NEC CPM machine that had a paper tape punch, reader and 8" floppies. First IBM PC - 1981. Bought my first hard drive in 1984, a monster 44MB Miniscribe, for $485.00 (got a deal - went in with my brother and bought two).

    Right now feel as old as dirt.:rolleyes:

    1982 Atari 800, 48k of memory and a tape drive. Within a year or so upgraded to 96k and first floppy drive. Wonderful technology for almost $1000 dollars at the time.

    First PC was in 1990 and been upgrading myself since.

    I get a new computer every few years, so none of mine would ever get that old.

    I was referring to a document I've retained since 1985. I no longer have that system.

    My first computer was an Amiga. Then my parents bought me a 386dx for about $2400 back in 1988 or so.

    I was born in 1983, so I can't compete with some of this stuff, and I haven't got all that many old files on my current computer because most of it's constantly being updated. However, I have retained an extremely old DOS game from 1985/86 called Sopwith Camel which is just a single *.exe file. It was the first computer game I ever played, sometime in '86 on my grandfather's old 286. When I got my first computer for Christmas in '93 (a 486, 66MHz) I copied the game over and I've been holding onto it ever since.

    Which was in fact, the answer to the question I asked. You beat me fair and square. :D
