I started work in Graphic Design when I was 17 years old, over 20 years ago now. That was on old Amstrad PCs running Aldus Pagemaker on Windows 3.1 attached to a black and white scanner that cost the best part of £1000! I then moved on to a Mac, a Quadra 950 which with all the bits that went with is cost an eye-watering £10,000 (you can check out the specs here). One of the main reasons these were picked was not the industry leading power, PostScript support, Zip drives (remember them?) or anything like that. No it was the promise of easy networking two Quadras to play Bolo, a ridiculously addictive tank game that wasted hours of time. Those were the days.
