    First computer saw a Vic20 with a massive 8k of memory. Would not have ever imagined the capabilities of the IPad. Having great fun. Excited to exchange ideas.

    Welcome. I am going to move you to the introductions page so you can properly meet everyone. I too started with a Vic 20.

    8k, I could only dream of 8k when I had my first computer! And yes, this would have been science fiction back in the day.

    Snap Gabe! First computer was a ZX80 for my 10th birthday. Had to build it from kit of course!
    Great memories. And a white computer quite a few years ahead of Apple and their white devices!
