    Ah, the US version of the Sinclair ZX81. Now that is an old computer for sure, and definitely not that powerful.

    Of course, the ZX81 does still serve a purpose and is quite useful...

    I started my computer journey in 1982 with an Atari 2600. The next year I upgraded(!) to an Atari 130XE. In 1985 I bought an Amstrad CPC 6128 for 5 years.

    But as far I can see, I'm the only one here who has an Amstrad CPC machine before Amiga.

    Well, to say the truth, Amstrads where far more popular in Greece than Spectrums or C64.

    I had an Amstrad CPC464 with colour monitor as my first computer, so you are not alone. However, I then owned an Atari 520 STFM from 1987 to 1990 before finally buying my first Amiga, so it wasn't what I owned before the Amiga.

    The theme tune sounds as though it's from an 80's americanised manga and how come the rock was better acting than Leonard Nimoy with a gay porn star moustache?

    Hi Guys
    Your poll only allows for a single choice, (radio buttons) as I owned a number of machines before I could afford an Amiga (loved the 1000, years ahead any of the competition, but out of my price range at the time.) The first machines I owned were home built from various chips around the old Z80 chip, on a single step or slow clock with lots of LED's so I could see what was going on, (I did build some expensive Americian kits for the local college, as I ran the first computer club in my town!) My first real one was the ZX80, again in kit form, (it was cheaper) which I upgraded to the ZX81 with the new ROM and keyboard overlay! I stayed with Sinclair for the Spectrum and the QL, then a few second-hand PC's, until the A500 arrived, first one I could afford, loved it; the graphics were better than anything I'd seen thus far! The A1200 was my all time favourite, the things you could do to that machine in a big box with lots of add-ons was mind- blowing and kept me amused for months! As I ran a computer shop at a large Sunday market for a few years, I aquired many Amiga models and parts which I used to repair the busted models for resale, learned lots (most of which I seem to have forgoten,) but I do remember the pleasure that the Amiga gave me! Modern machines just seem to wind me up, especially Windoze, I have a Linux box which gives some pleasure, but my USB radio link won't work on it, so I'm forced to use Windoze for the NET!
    Sorry guys, this is turning into a life story, Love the forum by the way!
