Yeah, as kids we were pretty cutting edge. We had an Atari 400, Commodore Vic 20, Commodore 64. Our high school had Apple IIe and IIgs machines. My dad still has the Atari 400 with the cassette drive. That was a pretty cool machine, although the membrane keyboard sucked to type on.

LOL! Old for Subzali is probably something clunky like a Pentium 2 with a 40 GB HDD and, gasp, no USB! I remember when the AutoCAD lab got all new 486DX4 with Windoze 3.1 machines to replace the plain old 386 and 486 machines. Yeah, that was a very good day in the history of Southeast Missouri industrial technology labs! My second college roommate had a bitchin' 286 machine that we played Tetris and solitaire on all the time, well between CHiPs reruns and drinking a lot.
