Retro 8-Bit Computers From 1979 to 1986.

Welcome to the Retro 8-Bit Computers website. On this website you will find information regarding all of the retro computers that i have collected spanning the late 70s to mid 80s.

The computers found on this website are of particular interest to myself as I have either owned them when they were originally released or have collected them retrospectively.

This website serves as an online catalogue for my personal collection only.
