My first computer was an HP programmable desk calculator that you programmed with a special kind of punch card. The punch card had partially scored square holes that you punched out manually with a needle tool.

Then on to computers your programmed with paper tape (or through the switches) on the front panel, and "convential" 80 column IBM cards and Fortran.

Punch tape, teletypes, and PDP8's ... love 'em. That was 1974. Then came those wonderful 4 and 8 bit microcomputers. The Tek 4050 series I used were pretty cool. A real computer with monitor in a man-portable desktop.

Took a FORTRAN 2 and FORTRAN 4 class when I was in college and got credit for a year of a foreign language (73-74 time frame). Had access to a punch tape cutter so I would turn all my assignments in on tape. Instructor was real happy. In high school I learned how to wire punch boards as well as to program the old Olivetti Programma 101 which was a little larger than the subsequent Apple II computer which came out years later.

Our church uses HP/Compaq laptops which we get from the business side of the house instead of consumer. That let us get Win 7 instead of Win 8.0. These systems are rock solid and two of them are used to run our A/V stuff in the sanctuary. We have two teams (one traditional worship and the other contemporary) and we each have our own lap top (requirements are different). Run PowerPoint, camera control software and audio recording all at the same time without any issues.

BTW, my Lenovo replace a Toshiba whose USB ports went out. It was cheaper to buy the new laptop instead of fixing the old one. I am looking at my Lenovo replacement to be a Mac.
