Vintage Computers.

April 1, 2018

My interest in Vintage Computers, all started about 4 years ago, when we moved into this Retirement Village.

I have had an interest in all kinds of Computers, since the late 1970’s,

shortly after completing High School.   It was then (1977) when I started

my course at University, that I first got introduced to them - Mini (networked) Computers.

I remember buying my first Home (Micro) Computer back in the early 1980’s.  It was a Dick Smith System-80 system with the keyboard and

cassette tape save/load drive, built-in. This Computer had a separate, external, power adapter.   For a monitor, you used any T.V connected via

the aerial socket on the T.V and R.F Modulator on the Computer.


I have, over the last 4 years, collected a total of about 10 individual, Vintage, home Computers.  

These include an Apple IIGS (1.25MB RAM 16Bit) system without its monitor;  an Atari STe 520 (4MB RAM 16/32Bit) system with its original colour monitor;

a Commodore 128D (128KB RAM 8Bit)all metal case) system, with its original colour monitor;  an Apple Macintosh SE (4MB RAM 16Bit);  an Apple Macintosh Classic II (10MB RAM 16Bit); and an Apple IIc (128K RAM 8Bit) without its original monitor.

I have a few other Systems, which I will add to this list, when I have finished cataloguing them.

All these Vintage Computers work 100%, with no problems.

I have collected these Computers from buying and selling websites such as and aver the last 4 years.

I also have plenty of old, back in the day, software, for each of the 10 Vintage Computer systems, I have

collected so far.    This software is usually found, for free, on various Archival websites, dedicated to

keeping these old Computer systems alive.


Kind regards,

Howard Pew.
