Reminds me of when I was in elementary, but we had the Apple ][ in 3rd. Although we also were using DOS and Win3.1 machines and Tandys up into middle school; it wasn't until 7th that there was a concerted effort to upgrade the computer lab so that we'd have computers running Win98 (probably with Pentium IIs, but I can't be sure).
On the high school topic, I was just apathetic to popularity. I generally got along with everybody, but was entirely unconcerned about where I or my friends were on the social ladder. Part of that could also be because even though I was only in IB for two years, I still mostly stayed in that circle (and Thespians, particularly in the overlap between the two). My last two years in high school were fairly unconventional, though, due to the medical issues that had forced me out of IB in the first place.
