This was my first own computer and had a VGA monitor, one 3.5" and 5.25" floppy drive and a very big 40 Mb harddisk. It ran MS-DOS 3.3 and thanks to Cshow (an image viewer), TurboPascal 4.0 and hundreds of games downloadable from Simtel20 and never a dull moment.

Later on the 40 Mb harddisk was replaced with a 100 Mb harddisk which I had to buy in Amsterdam on a sunday evening. A very strange thing now I think about it.

From the local computerclub I bought a memory extension board so that the computer had 3 Mb of memory instead of 1 Mb, and found out that RAM disks didn't survive reboots but also that disk-intensive games were loaded much faster now that they were on it.
