The 4th Time tower in the photo was my first PC. I bought it from Time as i didn't know anything about computers then. I bought it in 2000 and with the peripherals, it cost about 1500. It was an AMD Athlon with a 750 processor running Windows ME.

Just asking Thar do you do general late spring cleaning , or do I have to employ a Polish car washers wife ? as am about done  a year on with this bungalow restoration ,
just the big clean up left and that was never my strong point  :D
pure nostalgia  that I can never completely let go  indeed still running Xp pro
indeed my first  proper computer was a Staples  Win m.e. box with all the extras ,
including a 17 inch monitor   it weighed more than a sack of spuds , 
before that I had a box (very S/H win running win 3.1 ) which by adding 8Mb of memory it ran win 95 , but I could make a sandwich and coffee while it booted up ,
just hope windows 10  will erase all memories of past o/s's , and see me out ,
if it's that good I will build again  ,  in some ways it could be my "farewell tour "  lol:1
