    My first ever pc I couldn't tell you the specs as I don't have it any more. It used really large floppy disc's. I even believe it had Windows 95 on it. Thats about all I can tell you guys, Sorry. I was really young when I had this. Wasn't really Interested into computers at that time. Just wanted more Pokemon's. ;-)
