My first computer: the IBM PC jr (with the chiclet keyboard!) which I bought from my father's friend for $600. He'd paid over $2k for it "to do accounting work" but couldn't figure out how to run it. The monitor plug was not unidirectional and the monitor just flickered, so I called tech support hysterical that I'd bought a piece of junk. They actually called me back to tell me to turn the plug over.
