Interested in retrocomputing, computer collecting, or computer history? Are you nostalgic and pining for Ye Olden Days? Well, then, welcome to the Machine Room, the ever-expanding database of old computers. Here you'll find technical specifications, descriptions, trivia, and pictures of so-called obsolete computers from a horde of manufacturers, as well as links to more information.
This site pays homage to the wonderful days when 'computer' didn't mean 'IBM PC clone' and 4 kilobytes really made a difference. The Machine Room was conceived in late 1994 and established in 1995 (this is the sixth major revision of the contents, appearance and user interface). It has been a personal project since its inception, and is a free site.This is a community-backed site: 1249 people (of a total 3224 registered users) have graciously contributed information about 1284 classic computers by 212 manufacturers. The Picture Archive has 946 pictures contributed by 33 users or anonymous contributors. [more]
