I miss my first computer (1983)
By Manolis on 01/06/03
My first TI was beige. I believe this was the only model imported in Greece. There was a TV series at the time that featured the TI as well, and they had beige consoles. Probably lot of the PAL consoles were beige. I now also have a black & silver PAL console, got from a guy in Germany through ebay.

Bought it at garage sale in Albuquerque about six years ago. Bought a white one, never used, last year on eBay. The white is my favorite!

My first and only TI 99/4A was beige. The Black & Silver model was rare in Argentina.

I love antiquated computers. I am trying to find cables for this one
By RebSolo on 01/25/03
Believe it or not, one day many years ago, I went around to the back of my apartment building to throw out a bag of garbage. It was raining that day, and I'll never forget what I saw lying against the wall on its side: a TI 99/4a computer. It was wet from the rain, but once I got it inside, I removed the cover and use a hair dryer to dry it off. After that, I hooked it up with cables I borrowed from my best friend (who owns a TI 99/4) to see if it worked. Sure enough, I heard the old familiar bootup "beep" and saw the bootup screen. It finally died the end of last year but what more could I ask for free?

Was my first home computer, I think I was about 8 when my parents bought it. I played "The Attack" until I burned my retinas.

By Michael Koeckritz on 02/22/03
I had the newwer version, than that displayed on tour picture. I later switched to the 99/4A compatible Geneve9640 by Myark of New Jersey, USA We had a lot of fun and got our programming experience in Basic and Assembly with this little machine.<br>I still think that it was the best you could get!<br>cheers!

I'm trying to find out when my first computer was being sold to figure out how long I've been a user/programer for.
By Matthew Hagerty on 02/23/03
My Dad bought it for me when I was 13 years old (that was in 1983) instead of sending me to computer camp (which cost $200 at the time.) We bought it from JC Penny for $150.00 with a $50 rebate. Thus began my introduction to computers and programming. Great computer, lots of fond memories!

Lots of fun typing programs from magazines.
