All I remember is that it was a Packard Bell with Windows 95.


I had the Force desktop as my first. It looked a lot like this one.

My family's first PC was something like that (Packard Bell, Windows 95). It also would boot up into Packard Bell Navigator, rather than the Windows 95 desktop.

Acer 486 DX/2 50 Mhz with 4 MB of RAM and a 80MB Hard drive.

I later upgraded it to 8MB of RAM so I could easily play Sim City 2000. That little upgrade cost 200 dollars.

That little PC played a lot of great games in the golden age of PC gaming. Tie Fighter collectors CD, SC2000, Ultima 7, Might and Magic 3/4/5, Civilization 2, Warcraft 2, etc.. Fun times.

My next computer I bought in 1999 was a Pentium 4 I think, and I finally had Windows 95 and could play games like Half-Life and Baldur's Gate.

Most GameFAQers don't know what the definition of a generation is apparently.

I can't remember the specs on it but when I was a kid we had some 80's pc that ran ms-dos and used 5" floppies. Too old to even have ran Doom 1 when that was new. I really hated that thing. My parent's spent a few thousand on it and refused to replace it until I was nearly out of high school (2002), so whenever I had to type a report I had to turn it in on that paper that had the tear off tracks on the side.

On the plus side, it had atari style joysticks, & i got really good at centipede.

I had a 386 when I was really young then we got a Packard Bell with Windows 95. That was a jump. Good times.
