The first computer I ever came into close contact with was the Apple IIe.

Apple IIe. (oldcomputr.com)

Up until that point I had seen computers in catalogs and magazines, and I had seen some at my father’s place of work, but I never had the opportunity to see one or touch those chunky buttons. The floppy disks also intrigued me as did the apple with the rainbow on it. The thrill of seeing an actual computer in person was tempered by an immense disappointment because my time to with the computer would be very limited.  Our entire class (and our teacher) would have to share time on the computer. Mind you, we were in elementary school so our work did not really demand a whole lot of time on the computer, but I had plans for that computer with its monitor in all of those shades of green.
