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.
