My first computer: Performa 630, 33Mhz, 4MB of RAM, 250MB hard drive.

Brings back memories of AOL, Escape Velocity, Snood, and that screeching dial-up modem tone. For perspective, my 2-generations-back iPhone has an 18x faster processor, and 64 times as much memory and storage.

I think we got ours in 1995. What was your first box? If Apple made it, you can use the free (awesome) app MacTracker to get its specs.
