I thought the TI99/4a was incredible and featured expandability. At the time was the first 16 bit machine. TI just didn't know how to sell it. Who knows, we could be having tms9900 compatibles today.

Additions could be the Amiga 1000, the Altair 8800, the zx80, might be worth considering, the vic20, and maybe the original Compaq, or the hyperion, which both were 2 early competitors to the ibm pc, and.... Meow

I see Yvonne discussing old Xerox equipment (which I've actually used), I upvote. It's probably a good thing the copier-heads didn't get overruled at Xerox. Although I actually like portrait mode, maintaining vampire taps would be a pain compared to changing patch cables.

Visi, not Visa calc. I got home from work and had a UPS delivery notification on my door that I had missed the driver with my Commodore pet and was so mad. That was before cell phones and notifications that packages were coming. I had just gotten back from Germany deployment in the Air Force. I drove down to the UPS center in Alexandria La and the driver was still out so I waited for him. He returned and I got my box and went home and set it up and it wouldn't work. I immediatley called the 800 number and they instructed me on how to open the lid and re-set the chipset becuase they said they can come loose in transit and voila' , it booted up. We were supposed to go out to dinner with another couple for dinner that night but I couldn't leave my new Pet. I bowed out and played with it until I couldn't hold my eyes open any more. I ended up writing programs on the little cassette drive and programmed the game Pong for the Pet and sent it to one to the Commodore magazines and they published it. I mostly showed off my Pet with an amortization program and showed people how much money they could save if they added a little bit to their mortgage payment every month. I ended up with the Commodre 64SX. I kept killing disk drives, and had to move on. The best addition to any Commodore was a cassette speed loader.

Beautiful bit of kit. And Birthplace of the Turrican Franchise. Though I'll be generous, and mention their main European Rival, Sinclair's ZX Spectrum, whose fanbase is no less passionate to this very day! And Props to the writers for mentioning the Demoscene.

Here in the UK the computer that mattered was the Sinclair Spectrum. To get an idea of the scene check out the magazines around at the time - Sinclair User and Crash! spring to mind here. The Spectrum was a properly working class computer. Priced at just over £100 it spawned a generation of bedroom coders. As an interesting side note our national broadcaster, the BBC, decided to specify a computer of their own, the BBC Micro. It was marketed as an "Educational" machine and ensured that what you learned at school was pretty useless when you got home and plugged in your Speccy.

Commodore Amiga A500 or A600? Could be viewed as the first gaming PC and best all rounder at the time. Games/Photo Editing/Video Capture and Editing/DTP and a hell of a lot more. Even the movie industry made use of Amigas for morphing effects in the 90’s, as well as SFX for shows like Babylon 5. Still have my A600 in the loft with it’s fat 2MB of RAM 😂

0:56 When Yevonne said 606x808 was "very high res at the time" she wasn't being sarcastic. Home computers wouldn't have displays like that until the Super VGA standard in the late 80s early 90s. Xerox Alto had that in the late 70s.

Commodore Amiga? The best computer for technology of its age? Just because Commodores execs didn't pay marketing and bled the company dry ... doesn't mean this computer should have been omitted? I am an electrical engineer/computer engineer/software engineer/cloud engineer (did/doing them all) so I'm talking tech wise. Amiga OS was derived from Unix (like Linux but definitely not Linux). Multiple co-processors for graphics, support, sound, before sound blaster and Voodoo (NVidia etc.). Multiplexing the data bus, the co-processors where shifted one clock cycle on the same bus, back when the bus was faster than the CPU. Hold and Modify graphics mode (HAM) the best possible graphics of its time, er for the price. More memory built in, 2MB, when PC's needing a special expansion for beyond 640KB (back when HDD where in the MB's as well - dates me). Kick ass in the demo world (This mentioned the mini version for the 64) ... Default windowing environment ... mouse ... Implementation of Hypertext documents before it became ubiquitous as HTML... This could have been the one to rule them all .. er if a shark like Bill Gates worked there :/ Owned: Atari 400 (no storage!), C64/128, Apple ][e, Commodore Amiga 2000, x286 PC (college), AMD Athlon, Voodoo 1, SLI Voodoo 2's, multiple hand built, i7 2600K, i7 5820K, GTX970 .... and then since I dont get free cards ... splurged insanely: Alienware R10 Ryzen addition 5950x + RTX3080 .. didnt know how long it would take for bit coin to give back cards ... I might have jumped too soon ... but I was still stuck at 970... miss my Amiga

What about the Amiga. On my Amiga 2000 with a PC Bridgeboard I could run PC and Amiga software natively at the same time and emulate many other platforms. It could even run Macintosh software with higher resolution and more colours that the real (monochrome) Macintosh of the same time.

The Amiga Computer is never shown the love they deserve, except from people who had one... Most of the things we're doing on computers nowadays, we were able to do it on Amiga since 1985... I know, today's computers have more computing power than the Amiga ever had... but through the years, I feel it's just one big continuation with nothing really new... the only changes are how fast computers got to deal with 3D stuff and the higher resolutions... All the rest, I could whip out my old 1985 Amiga 1000 and do the same, with some of them being quite slower... Text editing, easy... Page publishing, double easy... Vector design, with my left hand behind my back... 3D Modeling and rendering... with patience... but I would probably better use the 1990's Amiga 3000... Going online? Just have to add a modem, like any other computer... All this in colours with stereo sound, when the Mac was Black&White and PC were DOS only... But I guess Commodore dying in 1994 means the influence the Amiga had on the computer industry died with it...

How did you miss the Sinclair Spectrum 16k or 48k? Cheaper than the Commodore, mod-able and "THE" game platform of it's time. I had a 48K model with the rubber keys and at the age of 10, I replaced the keyboard.... not as some savant "thinks in code" kind of kid but just all my friends who had a Spectrum had done too. I then bought the upgrade Spectrum+ case and integrated tape deck and put it all in that, again just like everyone else I knew who had one. The Commodore was good and even slightly more powerful than the Spectrum 48K, but the Spectrum changed more of the PC landscape than the Commodore.

The PC that truly changed everything was your own first computer, no matter when it was, how fast or slow it was. That was the start of something that can never be replicated or redone again. What a magic experience to finally have your own PC, the one you built yourself, the one were every part was hand picked and assembled by your own fingers and eagerness. Only to come to the final stage and you forgot to plug in the case power button.
