Impressed by a 10 year old desktop computer

Yes - you read that correctly - I’m surprisingly impressed with a 10 year old desktop computer. Mind you, it’s a 10 year old desktop computer that cost over $16,000 ;-)

2. Retro Computers

I collect vintage computers, and this page is dedicated to my favourites. The first part discusses the old personal computers of the 1970s-1990s (Apple, Commodore, Tandy, IBM, Atari, Sinclair, ColecoVision, Osborne, Kaypro and GRiD) while the second part discusses the high-end (and costly) UNIX workstations of the 1990s and early 2000s (SUN, Tadpole, SGI, DEC, NeXT and HP).
