From your first to resent, including with the experiences that came along with it...

(1989 - 1992) The Atari ST - My first personal computer, did more then just play games on it... ;)

(1992 - 1997) A 1989 Toshiba "T3200" Laptop - My actual first PC with MS-DOS 5. I used this for writing many novels and playing Qbasic Gorillas for endless hours, though the "orange" screen-of-death was hard on the eyes...

(1997 - 2001) The 486 PC w/ Windows 98 - A friend gave me and what a piece of crap that was. Constant lockups and errors, hated that sucker, but dealt with it for two years until one morning: it died. Never heard the term "backup" so ya know what I was going though at that point... I took that sucker out and actually hacked it with a twin-bladed battle-ax (did I mention I collect Middle Age type weapons?). Yeah, my friends thought I was nuts, but they did mention something about getting "rid" of it, so I did... LOL

(2001 - 2007) A PI 246 w/ Windows 98 SE - A pretty decent computer (my first "attempted" self-built PC), never had any problems with it. It was the PC I did a lot of graphic designing and SNES emulating upon, though it's death in 2006 really hit me hard...

(2007 - PRESENT) My PIII 866 w/ Windows 2000 Pro - Never a complaint (my second "fully" self-built PC) and still running great to this day. Only problem I have is with Win2000's buggy "pain-in-the-side-as-a-thorn" networking problems. In all due time, just learned to work around it... ;)

80s: TI-99 4/A computer introduced me to Basic programming and Ext Basic. Played quite a few great cartridge and cassette games on this computer including some Atarisoft titles. Still have one that works :)

90s: Packard Bell 486 33 mHz Windows system that I later upgraded to 83 Mhz. Played a few games on it and used Prodigy to get connected online.

Got an Acer in the later 90s which utilized Windows 95 and eventually 98. I think it was 200 MHz and used a Celeron processor if I recall correctly. Played games like Die Hard Trilogy, Future Cop LAPD, and Motoracer on it. Favorite controllers: Microsoft Xterminator gamepad and Cyclone multibutton joystick with twist action.

2000s: Compaq Presario Windows XP laptop and spent large amounts of time in forums online with it. Played Total Immersion Racing and some classic games compilations on it and have a X-Gaming Tankstick to use with it to this day. I've also enjoyed using my Microsoft force feedback joystick to play some of the games.

For the past year and a half I've been using a Windows 7 Toshiba laptop that is not able to play many of the classic games I have due to incompatibility issues and my unwillingness to get working on DOSbox. I use it mainly for email, video editing, and online reading. It does not have a good capability to play newer games due to a rather slow processing speed. . . So I'm primarily a console gamer.
