The Impractical but Indisputable Rise of Retrocomputing. Prices for vintage PCs in need of repairs and hard-to-find parts have shot up on resale sites.

Not surprising. PCs then didn’t restrict you from doing what you wanted to do and were just a lot more fun.

Now, computers and related are just consumption lumps. Then, you could truly use them as a “bicycle for the mind.” I miss those days even if many things are better now. These days, we wear the handcuffs and though they are golden and soft, they are still handcuffs.
