Transparent blue/cyan was in!
Pictures taken with what was my very first webcam (also transparent blue); it was also able to run on batteries so it doubled as a poor digital camera, as you can see.
Apollo printer (cheap HP clone).Epson printer??
and a Scanner.
Turn of the century webcam tech was that awesome.Samor I'm clicking the pics to zoom them but they don't zoom. :lol:
It also has blue! But it is not transparentMy first PC was an AMD Duron don't remember the ram but I had a 80gb HDD and a big monitor. Intel was too expensive for my parents.
Don't think I have pics of that build.
But this is my first laptop.
Not counting MSX, mine was a Pentium 75... well, that's the short version of the story anyway.my first pc was an intel 486 dx 50 mhz, 32MB of ram, and a 500MB hdd.
You are right, corrected.Good story.
In one part you said 16gb, but I figured you meant 16MB.
My first discovery of emulators was at a friend's place as well... he was running Gameboy games in VGB-DOS.Before I had a pc I used to go to my friend's house and discovered emulators with his Dell Pentium 4? desktop. The ones with the black cases.
First GPU I actually bought and owned was a Geforce 5200. It was good for the time but I think my board's AGP slot wasn't good enough, what a bummer.
dedicated GPU timeline.
Geforce 6800 vanilla.
Geforce 9800gs on Asus Laptop.
Geforce 6600 TI.
I've bought a couple of AMD cards for friends that wanted something cheaper than what Nvidia was currently selling.
I have never been a "PC gamer" myself and in the past i used my PC mostly for coding and emulation at time. Because of that my PCs were never that powerful because as long as my PC could run Photoshop and Visual Studio I was more than happy. I also had a GTX 260 and it was a really great GPU but it got old quite quick. The last "Old" hardware i kept with me for over 12 years was my Apple G3-Like PC case that I loved a lot.It definetely was....
@ruantec: it was only 7 years later than the pictures in the Op, but now I could run Crysis!
A shame it died early, but the GTX 260 was a worthy replacement.
I did a few intermediate upgrades (the gtx260, an SB Xi-Fi, a blu-ray player and eventually an SSD). In 2014 the capacitors on the mobo fried but it served me well for 7 years, the longest I've ever had a pc without replacing it.
Around the time I had the "Geforce 4 pc" I also had a laptop. It wasn't the best, but it served me well while I went back to fulltime studying, and then broke down after graduating. Good timing!
(and good old Dreamcast, he's seen all those pc's and still lives)
