Well I thought my first computer was old enough....
66MHz with 24 MB RAM upgraded from 16MB. It was an IBM minitower running Windows 3.1 and DOS. And my monitor had a glare-reducing filter.

Was playing games like Putt Putt, Freddy Fish, Doom, Duke Nukem 1, 2, 3D, Red Alert: Aftermath / Counterstrike...etc at ages 5 onwards lol.

i'm 34. almost the oldest here!

the first computer I remember was from the times of 286 back in 1984, when computers cost oh-so-much
You are 34 this year, in 1984 you were only 5 years old. You sure your parent will let you handle the components of a 286 computer? Come on lah, dont lie.

I'm 46 now; easily the oldest one here, a lot of shop owners in SLS still call me " 大哥 " when i go there to buy components.

My first computer, 486-SX25 (I think, or 33?) in secondary school.

After school go Bt Timah Shopping Centre top floor to hoot games... bring your own discs can be cheaper

X-Wing 4 diskettes, Wing Commander 2 11 diskettes, so many disks!!

The 7th Guest one of the hottest games to come out first on CD-Rom lol.

And McAfee virus scanner.. comes on one disk I think and always need to go update to get the latest version from the computer shop uncle!

And the BBS'es from those days, upload files to 'gain level', I still remember that lol.

Good times, will never forget those days

ps and yes, I don't think 34 or 35 is anywhere close to being the oldest in terms of the computer generation

Nostalgic, those were the days..

My first cup was a celeron, I remember I screw up the whole building process and I have to bring my rig to my friend house for him to help me fix. Since then I've been building my own rig.

Sadly I haven't been upgrading since phenom 1.
