Introduce yourself. Tell people why you are interested in vintage computers and what (if anything) you've got.

I've recently found the world of Raspberry Pi and the emulators have rekindled my love of 80s and early 90s computing. I found this site by searching for vintage computers NZ on google to see what was out there.

My first computer was a ZX Spectrum that my father bought. From there it was on to a Commodore 64 and later an Amiga 500. In the early 90s we had an Amiga 2000. I'm not really sure what happened to any of the old machines - would love to have them back! I haven't got a lot of space for having vintage computers and the screens, so I thought I'd look at putting a Pi into a c64 case and running some emulators - best of both worlds.

I'm based in Dunedin, and currently looking for a donor case and can't wait to get into it!

Hi and welcome to the forums!

I can relate to the comment about space. I guess with the developments in 3-D printing it's not beyond the pale that a raspberry pi-type machine running an emulators inside 3-D printed cases could be common. keyboards might be harder though. (:

Enjoy the discussions!
