What’s your first laptop?

Just bought a new laptop this week while roaming around VirraMall and also saw a number of really old ones being put on display. It reminded me of my very first laptop and it looked similar to the ones I saw.

I can’t remember the exact model of that laptop but I remember it was a 12-incher Acer notebook powered by a Cyrix 486DX4 processor with 230MB of HDD space and 8MB of EDO RAM (I later upgraded it to 16MB for Php4k+).

It was running on Windows 95 which I installed using 6 or 7 1.44″ floppy disks. I still remember trying to add Window Plus+ but it would hang because of lack of memory (was able to fix using RAM compression software).

Still trying to figure out what model it was (a family friend won it from a Pepsi contest back in 96 or 97 and we offered to swap it for a new TV).

Anyway, can you remember your very first laptop? What was it?

    I’m still using my first laptop, an old Compaq from 1995.

  2. I just stumbled upon your blog after reading your blog posts wanted to say thanks.i highly appreciate the blogger for doing this effort.

  3. With the whole thing which seems to be building inside this specific subject matter, all your perspectives happen to be somewhat refreshing. On the other hand, I beg your pardon, but I do not subscribe to your whole strategy, all be it radical none the less. It appears to us that your commentary are generally not entirely validated and in fact you are yourself not even entirely certain of your assertion. In any case I did enjoy examining it.

  4. My first Laptop was bought on 2009; an eMachines D725 with Intel Pentium T4300 @ 2.1Ghz, 2Gb RAM, 320Gb HDD and Intel GMA. It still works fine. Now, I’m using Asus K55V with Intel Core i7-3610QM at 2.3Ghz with Turbo Boost up to 3.3Ghz, 8Gb RAM, 750Gb HDD and nVidia GT 610M.

  5. Magnificent goods from you, man. I’ve understand your stuff previous to and you’re just extremely great.
