EDIT - 4/26/09 - Thanks to ComputerBob at LXer for pointing out that the link to the main picture page was incorrect. It has been fixed :)
It's been a rainy Saturday night and it looks like it'll be a rainy Sunday out here. In other words, it's a perfect time to moon over the cutting edge computers of my youth ;)
I found a great collection of defunct (or antique) home computers at oldcomputers.net, which houses everything from a picture gallery (below) to a great collection of old computer commercials from back in the days when so much of what we take for granted now was considered absolutely amazing :)
There are, literally, over 8 pages of advertisements to check out and even more pictures and other information. It's great fun and either humorous, nostalgic and/or both (viewing experience depends heavily on age and/or computing experience ;)
Just to give you some idea about how inexpensive home computing is today, find the "GRID" home computer below (near the bottom and it has GRID written on the screen ;) and follow that link to the information page. It retailed for $8,150!!! Ouch!
Enjoy and cheers!
