Vintage Computing

December 21, 2009 Comments off

I recently had the urge to muck around with some old computers. After exhausting my pile of crap at home I turned to the second largest pile of crap around, eBay! I started looking for an Apple Newton MessagePad and eventually found one. So excited I was.

However I kept searching, and found a HP 200LX Palmtop PC. I bidded and bidded and eventually after a second chance offer, I won it!

So now I have in my hands two iconic portable computers, both in full working order. I haven’t had a chance to have a good play around with them yet; but I will! Until then, please browse the pictures below and see all the oldies in their glory! (I couldn’t believe how small the HP was. I photographed it next to my Viliv S5 to give you a sense of just how small and well planned it was)
