Most of my friends and I inherited a parent or family member's clunky and chunky desktop as our first computer, but a lot has happened in the past 20 years. Many schools expect kids to use a computer for homework in grade school — if not younger — so it's become more and more common for families to throw down for pricey machines, or iPads if you're lucky like Suri Cruise.

I want to know: How old were you and what year was it when you got your very own computer?
