Ill try to remember the best I can!

ZX Spectrum
Amiga 500
Nintendo Gameboy
Sega Master System
Sony Playstation
Nintendo 64
AMD Athlon 450Mhz Windows 98 PC
AMD Duron 800Mhz Windows ME PC
Sony Playstation 2

The PCs get a bit hazy here as I've upgraded and changed so many times.

But it all built up to what I currently have -

Intel Core 2 Duo 2Ghz
Along with
Sony Playstation 3
I did have an Xbox 360 (Broke..broke..broke...and yes..broke again - FOUR TIMES!) I got rid after this lol.

Future systems - Amiga 1200? Hope so!

x86 A3000 - Did this a while ago. Quite pleased with the result but after a while I missed having a 'proper' A3000 so...

Upgraded A3000 - Fairly well upgraded as displayed, then it died.
Got it working again yesterday, sadly with a replacement ARM3 - I hope to God my ultra-rare ARM3+FPA10 isn't fritzed. The mobo has got a bit unstable of late, so maybe not.
This has delayed the various other upgrades I've either already made or have planned:

-Upgraded PSU
-Turbo Board
-50mhz VIDC Enhancer!
-HD-Floppy Hack
-Internal slot-loader

-Internal Network Card
-Hacked A5000 8mb board (as I can't find an A3000 one)

I would LOVE a proper 8mb board as hacking an A5000 one will be really pushing my soldering skills...
...internal network by plugging in a standard mini-podule card, then soldering a WE HDD mini-podule onto the back of it as it's small enough to fit with an IDE-CF adaptor - I'm lead to believe the mini-podule bus will support up to four podules & selecting (Pod 0, 1, 2, etc) is a matter of swapping a couple of pins, so far I can't find the specific info - do you know..?

Sorry, rambling posts tend to ensue when peeps show an interest in Acorn stuff.

My list is the product of doing lots of work for a video game collectors website and getting "the bug" as they call it. At one point I had 21 unique game systems hooked up to one TV with lots of power strips and A/V switchboxes.

In America, we call that a "fire hazard".

Hmm..

In no particular order with asterisks marking what I still have..
Commodore:
C-64*
C-64C*
C-64II*
C-64G*
SX-64*
C-128*
C-128D plastic*
C-128D metal
C-16*
C-116*
plus/4*
VIC-20*
SuperPET9000
PET3032
CBM720
CBM220
A500*
A500+*
A600*
A1000*
A1200*
A2000
B2000
A3000*
A3000T
A4000*
CD32
PC-10III

Something else:
Oric1
Atari ST
Mac Mini rev B G4 1.42GHz
iBook G4 1.2GHz
White MacBook Late 2007*
Mac Mini nVidia*
PSX
PS2*
XBox 360*
SNES
Wii*
GBC
GBA SP

A load of self built desktop PCs not worth singling out..

Laptops:
Dell Latitude:
CP, CPi, C600, C640, C400*, CSx, D620*, D400*, D410, D430*
IBM Thinkpad:
some ancient ones I can't remember, 760XD, T20, T21, T30

I tend to accumulate old junk, it seems I also like to type in long lists of what I've owned.

Am I Mac, PC or Linux? I have all three running daily at my home and the Amigas get occasional use as well..

My currently hooked up Amiga is the latest A3000 I acquired.. It's nicely nostalgic to have an early 90s spec machine with no network, no RTG board, just a 25MHz 030 + max motherboard RAM and max Zorro II RAM. I'm doing old Amiga stuff with it, not trying to surf the web with a crap browser.

Yeah, I got it as a trade for something (I gave away the Oric1 to someone who wanted one IIRC), and promptly sold it after I tried that it works.

It's the USA redesigned A2000.. They're suitably different (a bit like the plastic and metal 128Ds), so I listed both.

More than that - I used the strips to power other strips, and many of those didn't properly accomodate the famous "Brick" style plugs of the NES and Genesis.

I'd venture a guess closer to 10 or 12, all branching backwards to one strip that powered them all. Needless to say if nothing got used, I clicked that strip off and shut down the whole circuit. Probably why I never died in a fire!

- Acorn BBC Micro
- Atari 2600
- Amiga 500
- Amiga 500+

PC's I've built are not listed (I don't remember them all ). I also built an arcade cabinet a few months ago which you can see here.

I've never had Sega Dreamcast.. Dunno why, as it's a great console.

Of course, Amiga is still my preferred system of all-time and I occasionally buy second-hand Amigas.
