My name is Sean I live in a small town called Whitby near Porirua in Wellington, I'm 18 currently doing a degree in I.T. at a polytech and I love collecting old vintage computers.
I'm not sure what got me started with them, I think it was when I found Dads old commodore 64 and asked if I could have it (until then I was into modern PC's so I thought it was a stupidly big keyboard). I plugged it in tryed it out learn't some BASIC commands and now it's my favourite thing. I think I love the restoration part of collecting the most and the good feeling that occurs when something works in the end.
My collection consists of:
5 Commodores 64's (3 normal and 2 C64C's)
Dick Smith VZ-200
Sharp PC-5000 Portable (one of the early laptops)
Apple II Euro Plus
Apple IIe Platinum (which I recieved in the mail today)
And thats it so far, some of them have problems which I plan to address in the near future by looking for help online. And I plan to keep collecting (mosly from trademe).
