Hello old computer collectors,

My name is Alexander and I'm coming from the Netherlands (or Holland, whatever you want to call it). I'm 15 years old (yep, maybe the youghest old computer collector) and I'm collecting for 1.5 years now.

So why do you started collecting old computers?
I started collecting old computers because I've still a good memory of playing simple games on a MSX computer (these old 8-bit computers were well known in Europe and Asia in the eighties). My father had a wonderfull Philips MSX VG-8235 with a build-in diskdrive. After some years, around 2001 I discovered that my father still had that old computer at the attic. So turned it on and so it all began.....

Today I have a whole list of old computers:

1x Philips VG8235
1x Philips VG8020/20
1x Atari 800XE
1x Atari 130XE
2x Atari 1040STf
1x Sharp MZ 80K
1x Sony HB-75P
1x Commodore C64C (German versions)
1x Sinclair ZX Spectrum+
1x Philips VG8230
1x Multitech Micro Professor MPF-1/B
1x Commodore C128D
1x Commodore Amiga 500+
1x Philips P2000T
1x Tandy Radio Shack TRS-80 model III
1x Commodore Amiga 500
1x Commodore Amiga 2000

PC's:

Stuks: Merk: Type:
1x Compaq Prolinea4 33/s
1x IBM PC AT
1x Tulip AT Compact 3
1x Philips NMS9100
1x Ai Electronics ?

Portable computers:

1x Compaq Portable III

Mainframe computers:

Ok, they are not all old, but the main part is vintage. You can also have my MSN here: sanderschram@hotmail.com I love to talk with people all over the world....

Here a question for Erik:

Are you from Holland? You name ''Erik S. Klein'' is a very typical Dutch name. Please tell me something about it.

Best regards,

Atari-NL

Hello and welcome to the VC Forum!

You've got a pretty strong collection for having only been gathering for 1.5 years.

I'm not from the Netherlands, but I may have had some relatives in the neighborhood. My last name is German, though, although most of the rest of my blood is Russian. . .

Enjoy!

Erik

For having a collection like this at 15 is awesome! It took me until my late 30's to start collecting and repairing my "legacy" machines. Working on them enabled me to further my education in computers. I hope these help you too!
