"I am ashamed that I once owned..."

I thought of this one...I'll say the first thing that comes to mind is the Vanilla Ice CD from back in 1990.

Ah yes...I forgot about that one. My first computer was a Packard Bell. 486SX/25. That one was so bad that I guess I blocked it out. Mainly due to tech support issues over its proprietary nature. A screaming match over getting the modem riser out of it so I could run a replacement modem - basically they wanted to charge me $150 after I took a 80 mile trip just to install a jumper that they wouldn't send (finally they sent it). Final straw was the board failing and them wanting $800 to replace it. So I ended up taking about half that and salvaging some usable parts out of the Packard Bell and assembling my first custom computer (with jumpered I/O board - be thankful for what you have today if you don't know what I refer to!) and never looked back. Only regrets, really, were some bad parts because of limited funds. Unfortunately, I didn't get to have any Office Space moments with the Packard Bell, but that definitely was an epic fail.
