Classic Computer Collecting

 

Started collecting vintage computer systems in the mid 1990's.

If you see something on this page that you have or have a question about feel free to contact me about it.

Especially Atari 8-bit of which I have a deep collection of items and documentation.

I also contribute to efforts to convert books and magazines from the past to electronic format.

 

 

 

 

Atari


My first computer was an Atari 800. This is still my all-time favorite computer and I have several of them. When I want to sit down and just program something, for the fun of it, I still use that original Atari 800 system.

I collect Atari computers, accessories, software, catalogs, magazines and manuals.

My collection includes:

800's, 400's, 600XL, 800XL, 1200XL,
130XE, 65E, & 1040STF Computers
810, 1050, XP551 Disk Drives
850 Interfaces
820, 822, & XMM801 Printers
830, 835, 1030, & XM301 Modems
410 & 1010 Tape Recorders

Other 3rd Part accessories I have include:

ATR-8000 CP/M Drive System
Microperipheral Corp Microconnection Modem
MPP 1000E Modem
Rana 1000 Disk Drive
Percom AT88 Disk Drive

Indus GT Disk Drive
B&C ComputerVision Disk Drive

I am always looking out for the hard to find items such as Atari 815 disk drives, Astra Disk Drives, 1400XL's, & 1450XL's.

I created an Atari 512K RAM Card with battery backup.

Apple II


The word genius is passed around and used much more than it should be. I really think there are really just a few people in the world who qualify for such a title. Steve Wozniak, known as Woz, is one of them.

The Apple II and it's disk drive controller were designed by one person, Steve Wozniak .

I have picked up several Apple II series computers over the last couple of years. I have an Apple IIGS, IIe, IIc systems.

Currently, you can pickup complete Apple II systems on eBay very inexpensively, usually less than $50 for a complete system.

 

 

Epson QX-10

 

Probably the most elegant of the 8-bit computers. It ran CP/M & TP/M apps along with the Valdocs software. It also had the sweetest, smoothest keyboard that I wish I could find a USB version of it for today.

 
 
NEC PC8001a Systems

 

This thing is built like a tank, it will last forever. Solid, straight forward CP/M system that had color graphics.

I have a couple of these complete systems, which consists of a PC-8001a Console, a PC-8012 I/O Unit, and a PC-8031 Disk Drive Unit.

Somehow I actually have several extra PC-8031a Disk Drive Units available.
