I had to go to a place like this for an assignment for college, had the first ever computer from something like 2,000bc and some of the oldest computer technology ever. The pictures seen are nothing compared to what they had in this place, also was explained how the Enigma worked , did some cracking .

Amazing collection and gallery, it's just really difficult to get a sense of scale for most of the items.

I have an Apple IIE from 1983 with the origional printer, monitor, and diskett drive. Back then this cost over 4 grand.

I also have a old 2000 computer with 384 mb of Rambus (2x128, 2x64), the origional socket 478 P4, running at 1.4, totally crappy. Has the Riva 64 or something gFX card, and a bunch of other old stuff from that time.

I also have a EVGA GeForce 5500FX.

Other than this from 1983 to 2000 I don't have anything.
