My first computer had only 4k and used a Z80 microprocessor.
The first one that I built was an 8-bit 8088 for my buddy's mom.
1meg of RAM, 4.77Mhz, single 360k 5.25" floppy drive.
Whopping 4-color CGA display!
6 months later, I built a 12Mhz 16-bit 80286 with 4 meg of RAM, 720k and 1.4meg floppies, and about 200 meg of hard drive space.
Spent over $1000 on a modem.
First program I wrote was for a WANG on punched cards. No keyboard, no monitor.
Just a card "eater" and a printer.
Killed a lot of trees with that old machine. The card reader, processor, and printer took up about 12 feet of wall space in the math lab.
