I collect small home computers up to 1985, the smaller the better! I like to include disk systems and all accessories except printers (but even those when brand and style match the computer) especially for the under-powered home machines. Software and hardware that attempted to make such systems useable in business and other serious applications, including scientific applications, is especially fascinating. Over 80 items in the collection so far, which means that space is limited and much common stuff is accounted for. But I am particularly after early single board computer systems (those with just a keypad, like the KIM-1) and the Exidy Sorcerer. If you want your system to go to a good home, to be restored and kept well for the future, contact me.

I have recently left the corporate world to explore a career change in teaching in New South Wales. At great expense I have amassed a good collection of s100 and z80 era machines for students to study and desire to add to the collection. I am happy to pick up machines from just about anywhere in NSW and am not particular whether they run or not as getting them running again is part of the challenge. I only ask that they be from the 70s 80s era.

I am intrested in Personal Non-IBM computers of all sorts particularly unique or unusual hardware, working or not. I am particularly keen to rescue VZ200/VZ300 and Apple II Parts and software of all sorts. Likewise I am after "Pre-personal" computers from before systems where comanly available. CPU trainers that were sold as "Kits" such as the Educ- 8 and the Dream 6800 and the like to show people programming and train on how systems worked and as intro to programming. If you need a good home for any system, let me know and I'll at least be able to store them until a better home is found. Software and especially books and documentation are not essential but certainly desirable.

At the moment, my two bigest sections are Apples and Commodores, but I also have Amstrads, a MicroVax II, a Honeywell, IBM XT, Sorceror and a couple of Ataris, not to mention some more obscure models. Collecting is heaps of fun. :)

The first machine I grew to know inside-out, both in terms of hardware and software, was a DEC PDP-8/e. That was 30 years ago. I'd dearly love to own one of these now. I lost an auction on one a few years back at 700 UKP (about a $1000 or so I guess) and dearly regret it.
I've got a few bits and pieces, but nothing too exciting at the moment. I've had interesting machines in the past, like a 7-bit Univac machine I bought from British Airways (or BOAC as they were). My parents made me throw it out in the end though, the criminals! My children (4 of them) have slowly started leaving the nest, so I find myself with some excess space, so my intention now is to concentrate on old machines, with the emphasis on DEC machines. That's probably going to be mainly PDP-11's and MicroVaxen and the like, but I'm always on the look-out for a PDP-8 of any variety, but ideally a PDP-8/e, which I still hold as legendary in my mind.
I don't have transport suitable for sizeable bits of kit at the moment, and would currently have to rely on rented/borrowed vans, but I do plan to pick up an old white transit van as a secondary vehicle.

I teach "computational social science" which includes a bit of the history and philosophy of computation. I learned on an IBM 1620, thought the closest thing I would come to owning a computer was a pneumatic player piano I bought in the 1970s, and ended up bypassing the MITS Altair and Imsai 8080, looking at an IBM 5100 and buying a Tektronix 4051. Since then I've been rescuing similar machines and now have two Thinking Machines Connection Machines (CM2s). I'm also interested in microcontrollers and single-board "prototyping" computers. I'm particularly interested in the cryptographic origins of computers and collect in that field too, as well as mechanical and analog devices. I would like to see a pneumatic computer (I do have logic gates), but I wonder how we will collect DNA computers? The basement and garages are nearly full but there's "always room for one more."

I am interested in pretty much all kinds of computers, including x86 and peripherals. My special interests are DEC PDP, VAX and Alpha machines and parts, but will I consider giving/finding a good home for most anything, provided I can transport it and have someplace to put it.
Wanted badly: I am currently looking for a computer cabinet, something on the order of 5' to 7' tall, with shelves and a plexiglass front and metal sides/back in decent or at least repairable condition. That would be my ideal solution, but I'd love to hear about anything similar that might be available.
My area of coverage would be most of the state of New Hampshire, most of Vermont and Northern Massachussets. I am located in central New Hampshire, right on the Vermont border. I own a flatbed trailer and large pickup truck, so I can transport some fairly sizeable equipment. Please call or email if you have something interesting that I can save from the scrap heap.

I am interested primarily in anything by Apple Computer, or items for Apple items. For example (but not limited to), Newton, Pippen, Apple I,II,III (whatevers), Macintosh, Peripherals for any Apple items, software and manuals for apple items, or anything electronic by or related to Apple Computer. What I don't want are things like ad posters or show giveaways.
Outside of Apple items, I am much more selective... I am always open to being contacted, and make case by case decisions on non Apple related items.
I live in New Jersey, and am willing to travel anywhere in NJ, as well as eastern PA, Delaware, and the New York City/Tri-State metro area. I can arrange for use of a van or pickup truck, and in many cases can provide moving assistance, or short term storage for others.
Not everything I collect will remain in my custody. Better conditioned, more usable Mac's I tend to clean up, refurb, and pass along to those that can't afford a computer. I still welcome the donations of them, as it helps me bring more people into the world of computers.

I'm interested in obsolete/outdated Sun, DEC, Apple, Macintosh, and PC compatibles. Age of the computer isn't really a concern nor is condition, but I don't take non-functional monitors as I have no good disposal procedure for them and can't repair them. Computers are refurbished and either donated to a number of worthy institutions in the area as tested and working, occasionally sold on eBay or through the classifieds for their fair market value or below and once in ahwile kept by me for hobbie purposes. Most very old computers are donated once they are working. Components I can't get working are disposed of.
I can come to you for pickup anywhere between Provo and Ogden.
I can transport and store smaller loads of computers at a time (up to a 20 or so).
