I remember mine well from growing up in the 70s and 80s.

One of my first was a Texas Instruments TI-99/4A.   I remember typing in what seemed like endless lines of code from magazines for games they'd feature.   It was good fun but there was always a little sense of disappointment when the game and graphics didn't quite live up to the pictures and artwork in the magazines.

I remember the cartridge games too - Parsec, Munchman, Alpina, The Attack, Blasto - there were loads.

I also had a Spectrum+ and an Acorn Electron.   At school we used BBC Microcomputers, but they were expensive at the time.

I have fond memories of the 80s, and I couldn't see a lot of kids these days entering lines and lines of program code to get a game working on the Wii or PS3!!

I had a few others too, including a ZX81 and an Aquarius.

Good times.

We had a reasonable 'museum' of retro comps here at work (vic 20's, speccy's, msx's, dragons etc) until our company split and the programmers broke away to form a seperate company, taking the whole lot with them.  Angry
