my first home computer was a TI something or another. Pretty cool machine for the time. Learned BASIC on it. First computer that I used though, was a DEC PDP 8 with teletype interface, 1/2 tape drives, and 36k of magnetic core memory.
Chuck,

We had something similar in high school back in the early-mid 70's. I don't remember what it was but you had to type out the punch cards and then feed them into the computer to load the program. [:)] I didn't have a lot of interest in computers back then but I remember it took up one wall in the classroom.

My PDA now has a 1000 times the computing power. [:D]

Chuck, you mean the TI-4A/99 - Very popular in America as the eductional computer that Bill Cosby promoted. Was very popular in France & Switzerland at the time where I was living at the time of the introduction.
