    Do you like retro computers and technology?
    Have you lost count how many times you have installed Windows 9x?
    Do you find yourself listening to Onestop.mid because it's a dang good song?
    Well welcome to my Retro Tech thread!
    Feel free to discuss your current collection, computers or processors you would like to receive or the like!

    How about I start with an introduction, I'm Edd, I am a 17 year old who is planning on studying computer science next year at University. My favourite pastime is to work on my computers. My current collection stands at 11 machines, with computers such as Apple's eMac to a 21 year old Toshiba Satellite 110CS.

    I feel that these old machines, however slow they may be at modern tasks will still serve a niche purpose no matter their age. With my 14 year old PowerPC G4 Mac running strong as my LAN file server to my 17 year old Dell Latitude CPx serving strong as a retro gaming laptop.

    How about the original Nintendo DS, a 2005 release surely makes it 'retro' right? :teehee:
