Yes, I'm collecting old computers! The progress in the computer industry is so lightning fast that computers will very quick become museum items. I try to collect some milestones and classical computers. For example the first PC, the first portable, the first true laptop and so on. I want all my computers to be in original shape, unmodified and in working condition. It is also fine if original OS, manuals and software are included.
As the museum is located in Sweden I have a special focus on Swedish computers.
New Arrival in the Museum...
The Poqet PC is a very small, portable IBM PC compatible computer, introduced in 1989 by Poqet Computer Corporation with a price of $2000. The computer was discontinued after Fujitsu Ltd. bought Poqet Computer Corp. It was the first subnotebook form factor IBM-PC compatible computer that ran MS-DOS. The Poqet PC is powered by two AA-size batteries.
On my wish list:
If you feel like you have something lying around that would fit in to my collection, please mail me to see if you can become a donator to my museum!
One way to celebrate the history of computing is by collecting them and letting other people see how far we have come. Isaac Newton: one wrote: “If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants” putting that into context of computers the computers of today are only so good because of the ones that came before.
