    I needed one for school because many of the teachers at my university would put the textbooks online, so we can download them and not have to pay the hefty price of buying textbooks from the book store at the school.

    Not really. The school I went to was filled with tons of computers, so I did all my homework at school. It was a one year intensive so I was on campus for 16 - 18 hours a day every day, plus a handful of all nighters.


    Even if I had my own computer, I would have had to stay at school anyway, because the programs required to do homework were expensive (Avid, Pro Tools, Premiere Pro, etc.) and I would have never been able to afford them as a student.

    I think I was 13, and used it to learn basic HTML and website design. My mom had bought a better computer so I got the older one, which was still pretty decent back then and suited me just fine.

    I was 11 and my dad brought home this ancient 100 MHz computer from work. I couldn't even play meerca chase on Neopets without it slowing to a frame by frame crawl. It was useless so right after he went and got a 40 GB system which was ok for the time. This was back in 2001.

    I 'member getting our first Dell Desktop in...2002? 2003? Anyways, it had Windows XP; not sure on the specs of it though :/ We had that up until ~ 2010-ish when my grandpa bought us our current PC (which is now mine)

    Also meant to add that it had Win 7 on it but I upgraded to Win 10

    Had a shitty GT420 OEM GPU; 1GB VRAM but I now have a GTX 1050Ti in it which is quite the upgrade for me

    CPU is an i7-2600; w/ 8GB RAM (2GBx4) at 1333Mhz

    Would love to upgrade to a Ryzen 1600 tho
