Besides death and taxes, one other immutable fact of life is that a vintage computer collector is never satisfied with his collection.

I am interested in almost anything computer related from the early 1980s and before. I am most interested in older CP/M and S-100 systems and related software as well as computer related literature of all kinds (books, magazines, advertisements, pamphlets, brochures, club newsletters, etc.)

I am specifically looking for the following:

  • Any and all information and documentation I can get about the Kenbak-1
  • Issues of Popular Computing (newsletter) that I don't have
  • A.N.A.L.O.G. Magazine issues 1 and 5, so I can complete my set.
  • Softalk PC Vol 1.1 and 1.2 (June 1982 and July 1982)
  • Any old issues of S-100, 80 micro or any Apple or Commodore magazines
  • S-100 cards, systems, software, manuals, books and catalogs.
  • Any CompuColor equipment, software or documentation
  • Virtually any SWTPC computer stuff
  • MITS products, literature and software. I'm especially interested in an 8800B (full front panel) to "complete" my collection.
  • Ithaca Intersystems DPS-1 - especially one with the dual 8" drive, software and docs.
  • An APF Imagination Machine.
  • A Mattel Intellivision Computer Console.
  • A Datapoint 2200 (I used to program these way, way back in the day.
  • Cosmac Elf or other 1801/1802 systems.
  • Early Intellec systems.
  • Any MCM (Micro Computer Machines) systems.
  • Working KIM-1, SYM-1 or other early SBCs.
  • Poly-88/Micro Altair.
  • IMSAI VDP 80 and 8048.
  • Sinclair ZX-80
  • Grid Compass or other early Grid systems.
  • And since I'm dreaming I'd love an Apple I, a Scelbi and a Micral. . .

If you happen to have any old computer equipment, documentation, software, cards, parts, books, magazines or other related items lying around collecting dust or taking up valuable space, please consider donating said items to a collector who might be able to make use of them and who will be unlikely to ever discard them.

I'm in the UK, and have just listed a batch of S-100 boards on eBay. There is one lot of 26x boards, along with 3x 8 floppy drives and various other bits & bobs. There is also an original IMSAI 8080 (MPU-A) board in a separate listing.

I've just spent half an hour looking through vintage computer websites, and this post has been posted to around 6 different sites - I'd like to see the boards go to someone who will get some use out of them!

Hopefully, someone might even get some use out of the listing, as every board is pictured and written up. The images of the boards can be found at the following link (the rest of the images are within the listings).

I'm more than happy to send the boards worldwide, so get in touch (via eBay), if you need a quote.

Thanks guys - all the best,

I have an Intel Intellic system. I don't have it in front of me, but this is what I can remember:

* Intel Intellic computer * 13 monochrome monitor & keyboard * dual 8 floppy drive * 8080 in-circuit emulator * PROM programmer * hard drive unit /w 8 removable disk platters * documentation for the above (including schematics) * additional documentation (at least for a CP/M compiler)

What I don't have is ANY software. I don't even have a single 8 floppy. The OS ran (if I am correct) from the floppies, so I can't do more than power them on. I have had this system for over ten years, and I don't really have a place to set it up. I would love to play with it, but I really don't have the time or energy to devote to a machine that I don't have any software to run.

If you're interested, consider signing up in the forum area and posting what you have, collect, want to donate or sell under the forum area or the local Marketplace for much more attention.

Right now I have an IBM ps/2 286, Apple IIe platinum, Macintosh SE, Macintosh classic with carrying case, a brother word processor that has the floppy drive & screen, Powerbook 5300c, which I use everyday, G3 Imac, Performa 6000 series, and Mac power PC 9000 series. The first computer I ever owned was an 8088 I picked up for $1.00 at a thrift store, but it was dead as a brick so it has been long gone. My parents gave me their IBM ps/2 286 to use, so I used it for a while then sold it for $20. I decided to get another one when I got the one I have. I see some older computers from time to time & snatch them up for cheap if I have the cash.

I have an old Motorola 286 PC compatible dating back to the late 80's. I consider it significant because of the Macintosh (Motorola) vs. IBM PC (Intel) split that endured for so long. It was as far as I know Motorola's only foray into the PC side. I don't know how many were made. It works except it needs a new battery for the motherboard.

I have an digital PDP 8 or 11 manual gathering dust. It is yours if you like. You programmed these with simple up down switches. The PDP's were very Space 1999 like. No I never programmed one but the manual is from my dad's lab. I am interested in old Compute magazines or indexes of the small computer press.

WOW! I remember assembling my DiGiComp too! And WOW! A Minivac 601?! Yes, I remember playing with that blue WOODEN BOX back in the early '60's: it had 6 relays instead of chips, a rotary event sequencer, lamps, switches and jumpers that plugged into metal eyelets to HOOK UP your first digital circuits! Then again, I remember a 1950's era American Basic Science Series experimenter's home computer made from brown masonite wood pegboard. It had masonite disks, of the same material, that you created 'programs' on by inserting brass jumpers into holes in concentric circles on the disk, then you mounted these disks with screws to the main pegboard so they rotated over strategically- inserted screw heads to make contact with wired- up lamp circuits! (The last I saw of this device was just the wooden disks at a garage sale where the owner had no idea what they were. To me they were like the Rosetta Stone! ..Memories...
