I win - our first computer was older than that! Radio Shack dual 5.25 floppy disk drives. (I mean, I wrote multi-chapter reports on the thing)


Wow. Now that was high end. My first computer was a Commodore Vic-20. IIRC, that had about 4K of RAM and a keyboard that was notorious for losing keys. All the Commodores suffered from this malady, and last weekend I found a stray F1 key from my old C-128 when cleaning out my spare bedroom (which is usually the storage room). It was a couple months before I was able to get the cassette tape recorder drive. At first, I would have to type in a program and only be able to use it until I turned off the computer.
