Desktop (posted by Jim Taylor, 23 Apr 2016, 10:23)

Does anyone still use a desktop at home? How many did you own before switching to a laptop? When did you get your first computer. I got mine in 83. It was some kind of little Radio Shack computer called an MC-80. Then I bought an Apple 2+. Once I started using Microsoft, I guess I have owned around 4 desktops and two laptops. I can't imagine going back to a desktop.

Zip Disks (posted by Daniel Rowe, 28 Mar 2016, 23:49)

No, I never used them. But I remember using the 5.25 inch floppy back in the 1980s, and I believe you can still buy them new, if you look around! Weird, how there is a market for just about anything...
