My first was an SC/MP board, then an 8080 wirewrap thing then a Sinclair
MK14, which is the first one I still own, followed by an early TRS-80
mod 1, which I still have.

(Then XT clone, AT, 386, 486, Pentia, Mac SE, Mac 630, and oddments like
Oric, Spectrums, ZX81, Einstein...most of which are still around... )
