obviously we all have alot more time on our hands thesedays. So today i decided to go through my prized motherboard collection.
I did think I had slightly more and I am curious what numbers others have and see a average from that.
For my collection I included from 286 - socket 7 as those are my favourite years I have probably 5-10 socket 370 - 775 around but didn't include them as they don't count as rare to me, but they are definitely retro and accepted in other peoples collections.
My collection has a round number of 25 with me accidentaly placing a socket 478 or whatever it is into the count in the picture which is not included in the head count of 25 (3 more in working systems 386 486 and P1 socket 7)
The majority of my collection is made up from 486 boards pci/vlb a close ratio. 2 or 3 socket 7 and 2 or 3 386/286 boards
All my boards were tested and running, some have been repaired by me. Haven't tested them in a while.
