OK – I’ll show you mine, if you show me yours 😉
My first portable (luggable) computer was the Osborne Vixen. This was fairly swiftly followed by the Compaq III. Many smaller and lighter portable computers followed – culminating in the NC10 – but I can still feel the weight (over 9 kg) of the Osborne and Compaq luggables as I staggered from the car park to the clients’ site (about 50 m) !amazed
And this was my first mobile phone. At the time (from 1984 to 1988) I worked as an IT Consultant for the newly privatised British Telecom and got to play with all the new toys !lolFebruary 25, 2009 at 10:10 am #184904s162000Member

Wow, that’s massive, I love the styling though. How far does that ariel go up….! It must have turned heads making a call on that thing in public. Tell us more!February 25, 2009 at 10:11 am #184901jezMember
This was my first mobile. I’d buy it again if they made an update! Fantastic phone. Sadly mine broke :(. Happily it was insured :)!February 25, 2009 at 10:23 am #184903AlfiharParticipant
Not really as exciting, my first mobile phone was a Nokia 7110. Was a pretty good phone though the slider had to be repaired once.
I haven’t really used laptops for that long, and my first one an Advent 7039 really isn’t that interesting or old.
My first desktop computer was an Amstrad PC2086 with a 32MB hard drive. I remember spending a lot of time playing games like Pacman on it.February 25, 2009 at 11:54 am #184902kirkukMember

The funniest thing was trying to get a signal whilst driving down the M4 at 100 mph, sorry I mean 70 mph, I had to hold the phone in my right hand, open the window a little, and stick the tip of the aerial out of the window 🙂
