# Computer Timeline
### Entered in vim on RPoJ via ssh
The topic of RAM amount as a timeline of personal computing
has been mentioned [here], [here]. My memory of the
exact RAM for the computers I've gone thru is kinda sketchy,
but I'll try:
01. 1988 IBM XT - 1M (ISA RAM board)
02. 1990 Mac SE - 2M
03. 1992 Mac LCII - 8M (first internet conn -- 1993,
04. 1996 486 DX4-100 - 12M
05. 1998 Pentium II 300 - 64M
06. 2000 Pentium III 600 - 128M
07. 2002 Pentium 4 1.6 - 512M
In between some of those there were misc. computers. I
had 286's, 386's, Pentium MMX's... between college and
working in IT in the 1990s and early 2000s the hardware
Some time after 2005 all the home PCs belonged to my wife
and I started buying miniature laptops (uMPC), netbooks,
and items like my HPLX's. I have used an iPad as my primary
modern PC since the iPad 1 and now use an iPad Pro. My
ancillary devices currently include a Thinkpad x201 (running
Void Linux), and the RCA Cambio (running Ubuntu).
