8 Tandy 1000's, two Tandy 2500's, trs-80, coco 2, and another half-dozen miscellaneous functional systems.

I told my wife that I'll keep my retro computing collection small enough to find on a single large wire rolling shelf like the one attached to this post.

So far, so good.

Wow a five year old thread.

If Socket 462 is the cut off, then currently running is 3,

8086 8MHz DOS 6.22
486DX4-100MHz Win 95OSR2.1 Plus!
Pentium 75 laptop Win 95OSR2.5

although I have the following boards awaiting re-build,

286
386
Socket 7
2x Socket 462's

but I have a Tyan Dual 462 with two 2100MPs on it that nobody wants to buy off me. I'd swap that for either a Socket 7 that supports 100MHz FSB, or a Super Socket 7 WHY?

Also here are 9 standard PCs you wouldn't consider, all currently running,

2x rackmount Socket 939s running Athlon 64 x2 4400+ Win 7 Pro
1.4 Celeron M Laptop Win XP SP3
Celeron CPU 900 2.2GHz Laptop Win 7 Ultimate something
2x i3 Laptops 1.8GHz and 2GHz Win 10 Home
AMD Athlon X4 845 Quad Win 10 Home
AMD FX 4300 Quad Win 10 Home
AMD FX 8320 Eight Win 10 Pro

In addition to that I have

Sinclair ZX-81 16MB running a Memorex proper keyboard (still looking for a 48k RAM PACK and a thermal printer that hasn't been broken)
3x Sinclair Spectrums (plan to use one online)
PS One
2x PS2's
PS3

I have a couple of routine maintenance and upgrades to make to some of the newer stuff, but the next job is to rebuild one of the 462's and install Win 7 Pro to run a SCSI Card
8086-8, 286-16, 386DX-40, 486DX-4 100, Compaq 1110, K5 PR166, Thinkpad 600E, K6-2 550,
K6-3 450, 3x XP 3200+, Inspiron 2200, Latitude C640, Vostro 1520, 64 3700+, 2x 64 X2 4400+,
Phenom II x2 220, X4 845, FX-4300, Inspiron 3558. Sinclairs + Playstations.

As for what I do with all this lot, mostly just tinker with it from time to time. :lol:

Most of my gaming is done via emulation on 1 of my more modern active systems. I keep planning to set up a dedicated retro gaming rig. The working Tualatin system is great for a retro gaming system, but severely hindered by lacking a CD-ROM drive for those CD based games (it's a non-standard ePoS case). For Windows games I could get by with patching/cracking the games not to need the disc and/or use ISO images.

But I love both my 386 & 286 systems for the older DOS games. The 486 would be good too, but it's PC Speaker is dead and I'm not brave enough to start soldering on it yet - though the motherboards for this particular system are quite reasonable on eBay. Additionally I also love my K6-2 500/300 system, mostly for nostalgia reasons as I've owned it the longest and it's the most powerful "AT only" computer that I own.

Lol. Funnily enough, that's actually something I've been meaning to do at some point - taking proper decent photos of them all. I've got a few pics scattered about online of some of them though, using the number ordering from my post above:

I reject this idea of Retro PCs requiring Retro Hardware. Retro PCs are used to do retro things. From that perspective, S939 systems, new build FPGA based C64 emulators, PCem, etc. all count.
