My computers

I felt like making a nerdy list. The computers I have owned.

BTW also worked with DEC 10, VAX, ICL mainframe – VME, IBM mainframe – System 390 and beyond, Solaris, Aix.

TI-99/4A. Talks BASIC. Peek and Poke to move you directly into its memory.

Toshiba MSX computer HX-10AA. Failed MSX standard. Could already do a lot more with it.

Tulip PC compatible.

IBM PS2. Unimaginative bin. Dialed into the Internet with it for the first time. Via Compuserve.

IBM Thinkpad 500. My first portable, in quotes. Thing weighed like lead.

Lenovo Ideapad 510. Plastic device. Poor touchpad. But then again is by far the cheapest in the list.

HP EliteBook 1040 G3. Pretty robust and comfortable.
