Almost no games for certain systems, but tracked down flash multicarts for most of those.

RetroWiz, BitBox, 6+ Uzebox, EUzebox, Uzebox JAMMA,...if anything mostly an Uzebox guy. Just wanted to get the rarer classic machines in case I retire and have time to play with them all some day :lol: Thinking on Wonderswan lately, they seem pretty interesting.

It's not really retro, but I have a small collection of old Macintoshes. I have (in order of oldest to newest):

Macintosh Performa 6300CD (Mostly rebuilt, just need to get a CD ROM drive)
Apple iBook G3 (Dual USB model, not the clamshell, my favorite old laptop)
iMac G5 (with the infamous GPU capacitor issue, it only works sometimes, always kernel panics even on a fresh install)
Mac Mini G4 (I bought this to replace the dying iMac G5)
Mac Pro 2006 (1,1 Dual 2.66 dual-core Xeon 5150 (total of 4 cores, I'll upgrade to 8 cores someday), 10 GB ram, GeForce 8800GT, firmware hacked to run El Capitain)
Macbook Pro 2007 (2,1 17" Core 2 Duo)
iMac 2010 (My main computer, 21.5" with second 20" display, Core i3, 4 GB ram, running latest macOS)

The cool thing is, most of these were hand-me-downs from family members.
And despite being a big Apple fanboi, I still hate iPhones. Android FTW! :D

In terms of consoles, the only things I have that could be considered somewhat retro are a Nintendo DS Lite and a Wii.

I've got, in terms of computer, a Bull Micral 30, an IBM 5120, two C64s and an Apple II - althought these are mostly from my father's own collection that he shared with me after getting them from companies which planned to throw them away when they became obsolete (!).
In terms of consoles, I've got a NES, a Super NES, a Megadrive (Euro name for the Sega Genesis), a PS1, a Game Boy and a Game Boy Color.

But now it's a sensitive topic with the wife :lol: I made the mistake to show her this article as to show her that the old plastic I'm keeping in the house isn't worthless, but she did her research and, and yesterday, she came up with a link of her own, stating that if we were to sell all of that, we'd be able to buy a house in Greece for the holidays!

Ha! As much as I love retro stuff, I looked for a lot of stuff over the years but never commited to anything (much to my chagrin :roll: ). Besides a NES, SNES, Genesis V1 , gameboy original, gameboy color, DS original and DS lite, still have my very first PC, a venerable Tandy 1000. For its time, the graphics and sound were really amazing and really affected the young artist in me. :)
