Me and my CP 400 Color
My firsts contacts with computers…

My first computer was an CP 400 Color II (CP is the shorten of Personal Computer in Portuguese). It was manufactured here in Brazil by a company called Prológica and launched in middle of 1984. It used a black & white tv and a casset reader of tapes with programs. We also had the CPU/keybord, monitor, joysticks and some cartridges and tapes.
