    Well we're well into the 24th here in the UK and I was wondering how many of you are younger then the Mac?

    I'm not - I was 14 and can remember it being launched. I had an old BBC computer at the time.

    edit: missed a question mark in the title!

    i beat the computer by a bit over 5 months. just enough time to have developed enough motor skills to use the mac when it first came out.

    Wow. I can remember watching the superbowl with my Dad in 84 and seeing the comercial for the Mac. I had a IIe at school and knew of the Lisa, although I had never seen one. I begged him to get me a Mac. I mean 128k of memory. Much better than the 8k in my TRS-80 Color computer.

    Yea, I am old.

    I was beat by just over a year, but my brother was almost 4 at the time. I should ask my father if he saw the commercial while watching the game, if he was watching...

    Well I happened to be 35 years old then. I was the proud owner of an Apple IIE. Didn't see the original ad though. 1984 was the year that I moved to Boston.

    Hey, I had a TRS-80, too! I think mine had a whopping 16K of memory, though. (That would be RAM?) It used to amaze me how you could load these games and programs from a cassette. Crazy. Did you have any games for that beast?

    I agree with every onelse, it is best not to post in a thread if you don't like the topic. You should definitely read the rule or else you will get banned. Everyone is just trying to make conversation and contribute in a friendly way.

    I beat the Mac by a few years.

    I do remember using Macs in grade school to play number crunchers.
