   And I still have my NEC PC-8000, which has the 3.99 MHz Z-80 processor, with 16 kb RAM, and uses 128 kb single-sided floppy disks. It has a BASIC interpreter, and I used it to start learning about programming.
Green screen lo-res monitor, external 2-disk floppy drive.  Still in the original boxes and with original documentation.

   I just can't bear to throw it out.    :)
