    I would like to hear the stories, I think a poll would make it a little impersonal

    Didn't get my first (Dell 400mhz) until I was 18. Lasted with that one until I was 22.

    Got it cause I thought I was going to be a computer programmer. Yeah I was dumb, I hate programming. Now all I do is play games and watch porn. My how things change.

    My dad got a computer, had windows 95 I think......I was umm 8 or something when I first used it, so I didn't really have a computer......couple years later about 10 or 11 years old my dad upgraded and I got the old computer. So I didn't really have a reason to get one, I just started using one.
