The year was 1989 I was 11 yrs old and had my eyes on a brand new Macintosh computer. It seemed like you could do anything with that beast of a machine. However the reality was my family was poor really poor… no matter how much I desired this computer there was no way I would get it. Like most items in my life I was always a few years behind for instance:
I was wearing parachute pants when they weren’t cool, Kris Kross jeans, and Hyper Color Shirts yeah… few years too late. However I can tell you the Commodore Vic-20 computer my mother and stepfather picked up for me was amazing!!!
