My first system was also a ///LASER, from Micro Center! Similar to yours except it had two 5.25" bays and a 3.5" bay plus an internal bay for the hard drive. No MHz counter or turbo button though, unfortunately. I maxed that thing out from a 486DX/33 to..

486DX2/66 Intel Overdrive
16 MB RAM
Diamond Stealth 1MB VGA card
1.2 GB HDD
Sound Blaster 16
2x CD-ROM
3.5" & 5.25" floppy
28.8k ISA US Robotics modem
MS-DOS 6.22, Windows 3.11

Friends had C-64's (one with a tape drive, other had dual 5.25 floppy drives).

My first was a Amiga A500 with a external HDD and ram card, 1080S monitor.

A Brother word processor. It was technically not a computer, but my friends Dad was a computer technician and he modded it and showed my brother and I how we could play games and some other software that would run on a Mac or what not. Good times....

My first computer was when I was 3 and it was something that plugged into a TV and ran DOS and had a 5 1/4" drive, would have been 1989 or so... Second computer was in 1995 or 1996, a Pentium 100Mhz, 16Mb RAM, 1GB Seagate HDD, 2Mb S3 Trio, Sound Blaster 16, 4x Creative CD-ROM, 14.4k modem, 15" CRT monitor and Windows 95! Cost my parents $4500 at the time.

Ahh the memories :)
