I don't remember the brand but IIRC it was a Windows XP operating system. I remember thinking that was so advanced at the time lol.

My first laptop was a 17-inch HP pavilion. I bought it for college. It was so huge.

Windows XP. It lasted 10 years then it died. Moved to HP windows 10. Now windows 11.
I feel like 11 is slower than 10.

Hey everyone, I wanted to share my experience with my first computer, which was a Windows XP machine. Overall, I have mixed feelings about it.


  • Easy to use and navigate
  • Familiar interface, which made it simple to pick up and start using right away
  • Plenty of software options available, including productivity and entertainment applications

  • Not very secure, which was a big issue as viruses and malware became more prevalent
  • Slow performance compared to newer machines
  • Limited compatibility with modern applications and services
All in all, while my Windows XP machine had its pros and cons, I'm glad I had the opportunity to use it and learn the basics of computing. It definitely served me well in its time."


Holy Cow!
If I remember correctly it was a Toshiba laptop with windows 7.
