From the ark
Walked into the office this morning to find our junior technician working away on a museum piece of hardware!
At just over 2 inches thick and running the latest version of Windows 95, this Olivetti machine sports a single PCMCIA port, parallel/serial ports, a floppy drive and even a CD-ROM drive. The spacious 1GB harddrive had only been filled with 554MB of data.
But it's damn quick!

Just 32MB of RAM and the total number of USB ports is a whopping zero

Probably still faster than using Vista!

My first CD drive was a Panasonic jobbie. It hooked up to the machine via an interface bus on the sound card. At the time, there was quite a market in selling 'multimedia upgrades' which consisted of a ISA sound card and a CD drive that connected to it.

* Groans * I can remember my Dad lugging a Commodore PET home from work on a regular basis with 16K (not Meg) of memory and a tape drive (That's C30 cassettes folks!)... that'd be about 1980, I think!

That reminds me of one of my early computers. The first computer I had was an old windows 3.11 then I went over to Windows 95
What was he trying to do with it?

Reminds me of the 486-DX2 66MHz we had at home (many, many years ago), 8MB of memory running Windows 3.1 Later I upgraded the memory to 16MB and installed Windows 95. Windows 95 was and still is amazing really. All Microsoft Operating Systems still have a Taskbar and Start Menu today!
