From Ars Technica:

A photo essay featuring some hardware you may remember, some you may have only heard of, and a few things that you were probably never aware existed. One thing we learned: the older a computer is, the more likely it is to be blue.

This past weekend, we spent some time among the computer enthusiasts at the Vintage Computer Fest East, hosted by the Mid-Atlantic Retro Computing Hobbyists. The event was a mix of things: part history lesson, part nostalgia trip, and a bit of swap meet thrown in. All in all, it was fascinating to see some of the hardware that had been preserved in working order. In a lot of cases, I was completely unaware that the hardware maker ever existed. In others, there was a certain nostalgia for long-deceased platforms. But the big surprise was probably how people had merged some of the old hardware with modern tech to create some things that were very modern.
