Ours was a locally-built PC with an Intel 386 processor that came with DOS 5.0 and Windows 3.0, about 1990. The machine itself was $1,600, a huge amount for us at the time, and the software - Wordperfect, Lotus 1-2-3, and dBase III+ was about another thousand. I paid extra for a whopping 110 MB hard drive and a 2400 baud modem.
I spent almost a year reading computer magazines to educate myself on the difference between RAM, ROM, hard drives, disk drives, and so on. All that stuff was brand new to me. The 486 chip was available, but it was about a thousand dollars more than the 386, which we didn't pay.
I remember DW was um, "annoyed" because when we went on a 2nd honeymoon I took along a book on PC telecommunications. This was when you had to write your own modem initialization string, if anyone remembers what those are and I was having a hard time getting my head wrapped around a lot of new concepts.
The Internet existed of course, but was not open to mere mortals. You had to have a university, military, or government connection, and it was all UNIX command line. Ordinary people used computer bulletin boards, or BBSs as they were called. I was thrilled when the PC user group I belonged to arranged dial-up access for club members!
Imagine, having dial-up Internet access to the Internet via command-line UNIX right from home! Wow!
