You young kids and your floppy drives!!

My first computer was an OSI C2-4P with cassette storage and a wonderful 8KB of RAM. It had a modified B&W TV as a monitor that provided 64x27 characters on the screen (plus double resolution graphics by using special characters).

My first PC was a Turbo PC clone that ran at either 4.77MHz or 7Mhz and was especially fast with my NEC V20 upgrade (LOL). It had two 5.25" floppy drives originally and an 80x25 character amber monitor.
