    Default Hello from Ohio!

    Hello all! I'm Megatron, a newcomer to the vintage computer scene. I'm a 19 year old art student living in Cincinnati, OH. I've been into vintage computers ever since I was a little kid, and my dad would tell me about the TRS-80 Model III he had when he was a kid, and all the stuff he would do with them when he was young. My first vintage computer was a very well-used Apple IIe I got off a Craigslist ad back in December. After I cleaned it up, removed some of the yellow, replaced the broken keyswitches and tinkered with the insides, I was hooked. Now, after much scouring of the local swapshops, flea markets, Craigslist ads, yard sales, and just plain asking around, I've amassed a small collection of my own, including: Apple II, II+, IIe, IIgs, Mac 512k, Classic, Color Classic, PowerMac 7200/75, PowerMac G4, PowerMac G5, Mac Pro, Performa 6300CD, iMac G3, as well as non-Apple products that I'm trying to expand on, such as the Osborne-1 and the TRS-80 CoCo.

    I'm really hoping to post more here, as I could certainly use the help with some of these systems, haha.

    Great to meet you. TRS-80 is one system I know very little about, so perhaps you will help some of us out too!
