Acorn BBC Model B
Atari ST 1040STF
Commodore Vic 20
Sinclair Spectrum
Sinclair Spectrum +
Atari 2600 Jr
Sony PlayStation
AtGames/Flashback Sega Megadrive (I know not strictly retro/vintage)

No sir, please don't make me list all the machines that I own :(
It will take hours days weeks...
No please don't make it worse by asking me to detail all the variations such as different versions of the different models, or different PCB, major chip revisions or keyboard versions :(
It will take days weeks, months, years...

Mark

PS you may however want to look at this post and this post...!

PPS one day, sometime in the future, I may just find them all again, and I may, that's a big maybe, get around to actually listing them all... :!:

I refuse to think of myself as a collector... perhaps I'm in denial. I have an accumulation of computers, not a collection. And an accumulation of calculators, and of transputers.

The only machines I could put my hands on and power up and use within a couple of minutes are a Master and two Beebs. Oh, and a Psion 3 which I put some batteries into a week or so back.

I used to have somewhere nearing 70 computers, which included some modern Windows PCs as well as the retro ones. It also included about 15 BBC Masters, a few BBC B's and B+'s, and quite a few Archimedes (A310,A440/1,A540,A3xxx,A4000,A500, etc.). I sold most of them to Mark at Retroclinic and bought myself a digital SLR camera and 300mm lens, mainly because I was moving house, but also because I didn't think it was worth keeping hold of so many computers which were, essentially, the same. My only regret is selling my Master Compact.

Now days I have:
* BBC Master 512 with external 6502 co-pro, Datacentre, DualOS, TurboMMC and soon to be GoTek
* BBC Master Turbo
* Acorn Electron, +1 and +3
* Acorn Atom
* RiscPC 700 (StrongARM)
* A3000
* Apple G4 Desktop
* Commodore 64, with two 1571-II drives and tape deck
* Three desktop Windows PCs, HP EliteBook laptop, Apple MacBook Air (to be replaced soon with a Pro)
* Two Sony PS2 consoles
* Nintendo Wii

Cheers,

Gerald.

Hi guys

Thank you all for the quick replies

I understand that some of you have vast array of equipment and do not want to list it.

Mine is a very small collection compared to most, the only one of my collection I have owned from new is the Philips CD-i, the rest I have purchased in the last few years.

I also have modern-ish computers that run windows, ipad and lenovo miix and several rpi, but I did not bother listing them as I am more interested in the older stuff people have lurking around in the cupboards, attic, basement or proudly setup and used on a regular basis.

aah - a wish list - that could be very revealing!

I'd very much like a Curta "pepper-grinder" mechanical calculator, and I'd quite like an early HP programmable.

I have - hopefully - got a Spectrum Next with my name on it which might arrive this side of Easter. Already paid for, and a bit of an indulgence.

If a suitable all-in-keyboard Archimedes came my way, with the red function keys, or just possibly the green function keys, I'd be quite happy about that. But it would have to be a present - no budget for Archimedes!

Going by the posts here, my collection is still a bit amateur league!

At the moment it consists of:

2 x Amiga A1200s (one accelerated, one not)
2 x Commodore Plus/4s
2 x Acorn Electrons (one working, one faulty)
1 x Sinclair Spectrum 48K+
1 x Sinclair Spectrum +2 128K
1 x Commodore C16

No wish list as such, but once I have a bit more space to store things my acquisition targets are an Atari STe, Commodore 128, and an Archimedes of some sort.

A great thread! At ABUG in Cambridge this year I did promise / threaten to create such a thread but name it something like "the thread of confession / admission" with the optional extras of how many machines actually work and how many computers does your long-suffering other half think you have? :D Bonus points if you don't actually know how many old computers you own. :lol:
  1. BBC Master Turbo
  2. BBC Model B x2 (one uncapped)
  3. Acorn Electron w/ +1 +3
  4. A3020 (still failing POST :()
  5. Commodore 64
  6. Commodore VIC-20
  7. Commodore Amiga A500
  8. Apple IIe (not sure - will bring to ABUG :?)
  9. Apple IIc (some sort of power issue :cry:)
  10. Sinclair ZX81
  11. Sinclair ZX Spectrum (flashing bars of doom)
  12. Oric 1 48K
  13. Atari 800XL
  14. Atari 2600
  15. PlayStation One Mini (just to play Point Blank on CRT)
  16. PC of unknown provenance, believed to be Pentium II era (was bought for 1.2mb floppy drive)
Probably some stuff I forgot.

Wish list [-o<
  • Archimedes A3000
  • Amstrad CPC 6128
  • Sinclair Spectrum 128 (toastrack)
  • Amiga 1200 (just because everyone seems to covet them :wink:)

On the non-PC vintage computers side, we've got:

BBC Model B
Archimedes A420
Dragon 32
Mac Classic II

But far more significant is the collection of 90s+ games consoles and handhelds:

Super Nintendo (+Super GB), N64, Gamecube (+GB Player), Wii
Mega Drive (+Master System Converter, Mega CD, 32X), Saturn, Dreamcast
Game Boy, GB Color, GB Advance, DS, 3DS, Game Gear
(with several extras for multiplayer)

My wife and I one wondered how many people we could have playing different Zelda or Sonic titles (my and her favourites respectively). Having re-run the count in my head, it's 12 playing Zelda games or roughly 15 on Sonic. (We'd need to borrow a few TVs for the latter.)

I know I have a couple of B's and Masters, an Apple II clone something that belonged to an Aunt when I was young that I have since adopted, and a bunch of other 8 bit bits and pieces that have followed me around packed in boxes for the last twelve years.

Hopefully after our next move I am planning the mother of all Christmas unpacking to see what surprises I've forgotten about over the years.

I am Paul, and I am a collector. In constant denial, that is. I have gone through many attempts to de-collect but it is only getting worse.

I won’t list what I have but there are well over 20 computers (mostly Acorn). I want to reach to 3-4 some day...

Compared to many here I'm an amateur!

6x BBC Micro model B, in various states of repair, some with upgrades.
2x Master 128. One pimped out with NULA, MultiOS, DataCentre etc.
1x Microvitec Cub. Which I am ashamed to say I still haven't tested!
1x Commodore 64G. (Didn't realise it was a 'G' when I bought it and couldn't face returning it overseas!)
1x Speccy 128, broken keyboard, dodgy power connector, dodgy video output... :(
1x Amstrad CPC 6128.
3x StrongARM RiscPC.
1x A7000.
1x Z80 CoPro.

Innumerable other small pieces of upgrade hardware -- cartridges, sideways RAM boards, Goteks, etc -- that I've obtained or had lying around from BITD that I'm probably never going to get round to using!

Would love to own:

- an Amiga A1200. (Mainly so I could play the most advanced version of Exile)
- An older Archimedes. I had an A440/1 years ago and I can't believe I let my Mum give it away! Ditto the AKF85 monitor I used to own!

But even more than I'd love to own more, I'd love to have a few months spare to get everything running properly and have a large spare room to put it all in!

You're not the only one.

Most of my computers are in the room with me, on shelves. I arranged it like this: Computer on shelf out of box, all accessories in a plastic box on another shelf. The idea was to be able to put my hand on the machine (and its PSU, cables, software, etc) easily, set up for a play, then put away again. This is fine for Beebs, Electrons, Speccys, STs, Amigas and other combined keyboard type computers, but when you get something with a built-in screen it all sort of goes to pot. Enter the TRS-80 Model II, Superbrain and Intellec MDS-230 and suddenly that large desk you bought starts to look a bit weeny. With the MDS undergoing repairs it is out all the time, so there is no space for anything else; 80 column PET and Superbrain are relegated to being hidden in the spare room.

Now, the pertinent question: Can you actually use all of them (or do you)? No need to answer. Just see how much dust has accumulated on each one.

The follow up question is: Can you remember what you were doing last time you played with [insert computer here]? I get this thing whereby I start a project, get bored / disillusioned / distracted by another project and then struggle to pick up the old project again.

If you answer "no" to either of these, perhaps it's time to sell.

My collection would probably seem relatively small here!
  • Acorn A3000 (+4MB RAM, 80MB hard drive, broken keyboard)
  • Acorn A4000 (motherboard only. Floppy controller doesn't work)
  • Acorn BBC Master 128
  • Acorn Electron (until I can get rid of it!)
  • Acorn R260 (8MB RAM, Acorn SCSI w/SCSI2SD)
  • Atari 520STE (+4MB RAM)
  • Commodore Amiga 500 (+1.5MB slow RAM, external floppy, bodgy 14 MHz accelerator. A touch unstable)
  • Commodore C64c
  • Microdigital Mico (motherboard only)
  • Spectrum 48k (keyboard plate badly attached)
  • Tons of PC stuff, ranging from 8088/10 to dual Pentium III/933. Currently I have 386DX/40 and K6-2/300 + Voodoo 2 set up.
  • SNES
  • N64
  • Gamecube
  • Gameboy Pocket
  • Gameboy Advance
  • PlayStation
  • Xbox 360

It’s a tremendously interesting machine. Some of the recent stuff Doug Little (DML) has done involving the cpu, fpu and DSP is pretty incredible.

Most of my stuff lives in our loft conversion. My daughters call it "DaddyLand" :D

I'd also love the time to get them all running properly!

For me, it's the nostalgia looking at them brings, more than actually using them, since I can do that on a Mist/other FPGA/RetroPie.
Looking at the old computers reminds me of happier, simpler times. Not to mention remembering dreaming about owning the various computer models I never got to buy back then. They all looked so good in the ads!

Of course, I also love repairing them and the thought of preserving them.

I have (am slooooowwwwwly building... I feel like I should have more progress to show for the 15+ years I've been at it) a virtual museum for my collection (>20 years in the making).

I don't know if it'll make 1024MAK feel better or worse, but: http://www.typewritten.org/Systems

Wow! Some amazingly unusual machine there. And yet... no 8080 machine? Or is it there but I didn't spot it?

I just about keep this list up to date, but it contains all my gear, not just retro.
