I realize there are those here who can easily pre-date me, but my first machine was 1983. Be prepaired to stone me, but it was an Apple IIe. It had a 6502 8 bit 1 megahertz processor, 128 K of ram (only 48 K accessible without special programming), an 80 column card (not many here will know what that is), 1 floppy drive (143 K on a 5 1/4" floppy) and a 14" Gorilla green screen monitor. Price = $2500. I went back a week later and added a 2nd floppy drive for $200. Don't laugh too hard, the system still runs. Not long after, I saw my first hard drive. It held 5 meg and also cost $2500. It might as well have been infinite storage to us back then.
