A South African collection of retro, classic and vintage computers, games, software, books and occasional game console.

This is my vintage / retro computer and games collection and has been keeping me fascinated for the past 13 years. The collection covers systems from various manufacturers over a period of more than 35 years and ranges from machines, consoles, games, software, magazines and books to just about any other retro or vintage computing related items. 

My primary area of focus is IBM and IBM Compatible machines starting from the 8088 up to the early Pentium II systems (last of the DOS days) but the Commodore Amiga, Commodore 64, Atari 520ST, Creativision, Apple II, Machintosh and Sinclair ZX Spectrum also make an appearance as many of the games from the IBM DOS days also appeared on these systems and it's awesome to see how the versions differ over the various platforms.

I was never into the console game scene when I was younger and only really got interested in it later in life with the Sony PS2 so for me IBM PC games from the DOS era with a sprinkle of Windows 9x have the most prominent place in my collection.

If you don't see items for a specific system on the website it may mean that I have not had time to capture them or it's something that I don't have in the collection.
