They don't get much older than that. Unless someone walks up saying they have a jacquards loom or the Eniac.

When we got this it was disgusting yellow from tar and sun so we decided to brighten it up even more:



I used to collect a lot of Sun Microsystems computers and when I tried giving them away someone gave me one of these SGI O2 computers:



I bought a Sun Ultra 2 Enterprise server on ebay for $20CDN then sunk about $300 in parts to beef it up (many years ago):



Perhaps my favourite laptop of all time was this IBM Butterfly laptop (think it was a 701C - it's long gone). The keyboard expanded out as you lifted the lid of the laptop.



I see there are some fans of older Macintosh systems. These are not terribly unique, but we got a bunch of these about 3 years ago and ended up selling them for $20/pop:

I miss my C64...

I haven't any room for chassis' and I recycle a bunch of cases this past year, but I still have a few motherboards from the '90s.

I used to work on mainframes and repair industrial drives from the '70s... not quite Eniacs.

I think you'll appreciate this one then even though it's a really bad shot from the cell phone I had quite a few years ago. One of my friends used to work for a bank that was getting rid of this old Tandem mainframe. They offered it to him and he took it and stored it in his parents garage (funny enough it's still there last I talked to him and he's gone through a couple of houses).



He and I were both big fans of the C64 and if you look in the top right you'll notice 1 above the other Vic 20.

I missed the mainframe era, but our school had Commodore PET computers and later Unisys Icons (which I'm told were sold to them for $7500/each).

I see a few oldies every now and then. A couple of weeks ago we got a Tandy 1000 in. It's always nice to reminisce, but the urge to keep anything fades pretty quickly. At one point we had a DEC Alpha. I probably would have kept it except it was one of the less useful XL 266. I put it on display for a short time and then got rid of it. Now when anything old comes around I call a friend who's in touch with a computer museum near our area.

I got my start on TRS-80 Model III... still wish we had nuclear buttons.

I did most of my work on Harris H-100 24-bit mainframes. I think we calculated its clock speed to around 3Mhz. The ones I worked on had two 218KB memory cards (16" x 18") and 20MB hard storage on 4 18" platters. There was an option for a card reader, but I never had one handy to play with.
