First PC? Or was it a MAC?

It was 20 years ago today: Not Sgt. Pepper, but my PCjr | Coop's Corner : A Blog from Charlie Cooper - CNET Charlie Cooper posted this entry on his first PC. It started me reminiscing about the old days. I had a Timex Sinclair ZX81. It was hooked up to a cassette recorder and a small portable TV. My first BASIC programs solved quadratic equations and graphed Sine waves. I thought that was very cool. My neighbor on the other hand, who was a year younger than me, had a TRS-80. He wrote a BASIC problem to automate his father's drug store. Just slightly different skill levels. :)
