I see Amiga, I like 😁

Organised chaos my friend 😉

I know where everything is......

Got two Amiga A600s. Got them well before prices started to get silly. Never used an Amiga before so thought why not? That Sanyo LCD puts out a perfect flicker free video output when the A600 is running.

There's a glitch in the matrix.

Apparently 32-bit is dead and nobody likes P4s.

Is that a TT030 or Mega STE? Either way, my favorite computer chassis. Very nice!

TT would be a dream. I own two Mega STE....

Looks to be a Competition Pro, Zip stick (although I think maybe the Zip stick had square fire buttons compared to the Competition Pro?) or similar. Fairly popular type of joystick in the 8/16bit home computer era.

Been quite some time since I posted. Did you miss me? 😁 For fun, here is a 18 year difference in my computing area.

I've had countless iterations in between. It has come a long way baby. Can you spot the things that have survived the test of time?

Taz from Taz Mania as pen holder? Below the lower left corner of the central monitor on second photo, I think.

the difference in screen size is telling. also, if you bought a brand new top range PC back then it would now be a vintage retro machine! 😀

I have computers scattered all over the house, I don't know that I can pick one as my 'computing area' and I also don't know that I want to take pics of all of them. xD

There's always panorama mode on the camera.

This one is a PC3 actually. Same case, but it's an XT not a 386. Found it complete (except for the mouse) and working in a dumpster!
Well, it wasn't working inside the dumpster. I had to take it home and plug it in, but you know what I mean.
NOS PC3 sounds pretty awesome. I just looked at the thread, and it certainly is bright and shiny!
