We all know computers have evolved so much in the recent times. The technology is keeping on improving and upgrading.
I recalled something from the past and wanted to share it with you all. I still remember that we bought our first computer in 1997. Compared to the computer we are using now at home, it was far behind comparison. But I'm proud that we didn't do any mistake in getting the best computer available at that time. When we bought our first computer, we didn't have any guide. But thankfully, with the technology, Internet has also evolved. And now we have guidance, comparison and review websites in place. Another change is that now-a-days, people are concentrating more on laptops than desktops. I just stumbled upon a website that has a buying guide for laptops. After reading it, I remembered my first computer, and thought I would publish a post telling what my first computer configuration was without a guide at that time. It was…
• Pentium Processor @ 166 MHz
• 4 MB EDO RAM
• 1 GB Hard Disk Drive
• 14" CRT Monitor
• No CD Drive
• 5.25" Floppy Disk Drive
Well, well, I cannot write more about it; in the era that you are reading this, it is the configuration which you won't even recognize I guess.
Anyway, feel free to use the guide if you want to buy laptops.
And wait! Just wanted one great point of comparison to be added. Any guesses? Mmm no I think. You see that I had 1 GB Hard Disk Drive at that time. The comparison is that the current computer I have has 2 GBs of RAM! Well, forget it; even the laptop I currently have has 1 GB RAM. What a change! I'm again linking to the wonderful guide on buying laptops. Hope it will be useful for you.
I'm a photographer, and find it difficult to publish text-only posts :) So I am publishing a photograph also. I took it about 2 months back when I was assembling a computer for one of my clients. The following photo is of Intel DG35EC Motherboard with Intel E7400 Core 2 Duo Processor.
