What’s this all about?

My idea with this blog is to showcase the different vintage computers I have and, when I repair them, document the process to share the knowledge.

In general, I’m interested in computers that have some meaning to me: not any vintage computer, and not exclusively the ones that I owned back then. Of course, there are a few exceptions. ๐Ÿ™‚

I currently own (I will be updating this list as it changes):

  • Sinclair ZX81 (the first computer that I ever used and owned).
  • Atari 130XE (the second computer I owned)
  • Atari 2600 (I know, it is not a computer, but I owned one and it is a classic!)
  • Atari 400
  • Atari 800
  • Atari 65XE (need a small repair)
  • Atari 65XE (in queue to be converted to a 320XE)
  • Atari 520ST (in queue to be converted to a “Frankenstein”) ๐Ÿ˜‰
  • Atari 1040STF
  • Atari Stacy (in the process of being repaired and upgraded)
  • Tandy TRS-80 (need some repairs)
  • Apple II+

Over time, I will have posts for each of these computer, with their description, repairs/upgraded/changes I made to them, and why I have them.

Fortunately, at home, I have a small “lab” that I can use for all these works and my tools (see picture).

Thanks for reading!
