that looks like an interesting one too...
and it is

Got this today... nicley put together and the pictures are as good as the one's in the Digital Retro book.

However, this one in particular discusses earlier and much more industrialised computers from way back to the start of the 1940's working it's way upto 1996 with Google's First Production Server.

Some really gorgeous work of hardware 'art' in this and can't stop gazing at some of them... beautiful close up shots too. Again, like the Digital Retro book there is an introduction on each piece, how much it cost to implement etc etc...

No Amiga's sadly but the C64 makes an appearance.

We have computer wise from start to finish..

Z3 adder
Eniac
Univac II
WISC
JOHNNIAC
Core Memory
SAGE
NEAC2203
Minuteman I Guidance Computer
Philco 212
IBM System/360 & IBM 7030 "Stretch"
Apollo guideance computer
DEC PDP-B
DDP-116
CDC 6600
IMP
Kitchen computer (Honeywell H316 Minicomputer)
Kenbak-1
HP-35
Superpaint
Altair 8800
Illiac IV
Cray 1, 2 & 3
Apple I/II
TRS-80 Model 1 / 100
Minitel
Osborne 1
C64
Compaq Portable
Macintosh
Google Computer

So, some pretty iconic pieces, apart from the C64 I wonder if I could pick up any of those others on fleabag?

The Cray's are gorgeous

If you love old industry type computers with the odd few consumer products then I heartily recommend...
