Yes, I'm collecting old computers! The progress in the computer industry is so lightning fast that computers will very quick become museum items. I try to collect some milestones and classical computers. For example the first PC, the first portable, the first true laptop and so on. I want all my computers to be in original shape, unmodified and in working condition. It is also fine if original OS, manuals and software are included.
As the museum is located in Sweden I have a special focus on Swedish computers.
New Arrival in the Museum...
The iBook was a line of laptop computers sold by Apple Computer from 1999 to 2006. The line targeted entry level, consumer and education markets, with lower specifications and prices than the PowerBook, Apple's higher-end line of laptop computers.
Three distinct designs of
the iBook were introduced during its lifetime. The first, known as the
"Clamshell", was influenced by the design of Apple's popular iMac line
at the time. It was a significant departure from previous portable
computer designs due to its shape, bright colors, incorporation of a
handle into the casing, lack of a hinged cover over the external ports,
and built-in wireless networking.

On my wish list:
If you feel like you have something lying around that would fit in to my collection, please mail me to see if you can become a donator to my museum!
One way to celebrate the history of computing is by collecting them and letting other people see how far we have come. Isaac Newton: one wrote: “If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants” putting that into context of computers the computers of today are only so good because of the ones that came before.
