Now I’m suddenly sorry I sold my Atari 2600 with over 50 games to my cousin a few years ago.

I had one of those way back when, I also owned a couple of Macintosh Lisa models which I wish I still had.

But they served their purpose and I sold them to move up to the newer model and never looked back.

It’s still fun when I see these articles about old hardware that I had actually used some of those machines back in the early days of the personal PC revolution. God it was fun back then.

I remember the 2e in grade school. Needed a boot disk just to turn it on. Man.... computers have come a long way since then.

I'm super late but this is an awesome story!! The surprising thing is that it booted up, and worked with no problem!! Excellent!
