For some computing enthusiasts, newer is not always better. While some computer lovers hanker for the latest release, the newest model, others prefer only what the past has to offer. Vintage computing? Really? Okay, so they may not feature the sleekest design, and they may not feature mind-blowing graphics, but for those who love them, vintage computers have more than enough charm to make up for all that. Yes, they may be beige, and yes they may be bulky, but vintage computers can be pretty darn interesting. For those in the know, they can provide interesting insight into how computers developed over time, to create the amazing gadgets that stock the shelves today. Thanks to Hollywood, many people know the story of how Apple was built. Looking into the life of Steve Jobs, these movies show how computing technology developed over time as Apple grew. Similar documentaries and films also plot the course of other famous computing companies, such as Amiga, Commodore, Compaq and IBM, showing how they developed and how technology advanced over the decades. Nowadays, there are enthusiasts who are way more interested in those older, vintage models than whatever new is stocked in store. While some enthusiasts collect vintage computers, keeping them pristine as showpieces, others prefer to work on them, taking them apart and rebuilding them.
