Retrocomputing is a hobby where enthusiasts collect rare, interesting, or valuable hardware and software for the collectible value or to enjoy using it.
Many expensive systems like IBM Mainframes, DEC minicomputers, or SGI workstations have now become affordable on the used computer market. Other vintage computers such as Apple IIs, IBM PCs, ZX Spectrums, Atari, Commodore, Amigas and BBC Micros are even more popular among collectors for sentimental reasons.
This group is for demonstrating, discussing, displaying, coding on, playing with (etc. . .) the original hardware in order to enjoy and share the experience with like-minded others, while preserving the aging electronics for historical reasons.
