In a different thread someone asked me what I planned to do with a laptop I have with Vista 64 bit almost running on it. I laughed and mentioned that I still have every computer I ever had. It's like my computer version of Leno's Garage only with computers that most people just throw away. Gave me the idea to ask if there are any other PC hoarders out there and if you would willing to confess what they are and maybe why you keep them. I apologize to anyone I may have offended in the other post when I made a joke about people who owned Packard Bell computers. Back in the day most people who owned PC's joked about Packard Bell Computers as being the cheapest least reliable computer that money could buy. Maybe we'll even find some defenders of the brand's reputation. I'll start with what actually was my second computer which was the first MAC purchased in April of 1986 for almost $2700.00 with 2 programs and a 3.5 floppy as the hard drive. My first was one advertised in the pages of Omni magazine. It cost between $49 and $65 dollars. It said: all you need is a cassette recorder which IT used as a hard drive. Maybe someone knows the name of this thing. It had no screen. You needed to use a B&W TV and the cassette recorder to be fully operational. There were two companies offering the same exact " computer " with different company name. I'll do my own search and see if I can figure it out. I once typed my name with it but after that I had no idea: " what a computer was used for ".
