A collection of that kind of crept upon me. I started off within SDS and to do my accounts and type letters on. Added and STE for my daughter to do music on. Er messed about with a few of the games and programms , that was about 10 years ago and you've probably guessed what's coming next ....

Atari Falkon 14MB (gonna fit an internal IDE drive next).
Atari TT 4MB memory, 32MB TT memory (gonna fit 10MB ST memory next, no luck with the Nova card yet)
STE 4 MB (a couple),
Mega 1 ST,

Philips colour monitor,
Atari mono monitor,
SCSI CD-ROM drive,
SCSI scanner,

Apple PowerBook 190 (I hope to emulate an Atari on it one day soon)

I forgot to mention:

1 x MegaSTE2 with 4MB and external 90/100MB SCSI drive

2 x PCs:

- 1 x AMD 700 running Win98 solely for transferring files to/from ST via Ghostlink. Massive 6 Gig drive and 1 x CD reader and 2 x CD writers in it (they were free, so put them in the machine!)

- 1 x AMD 1900 running XP (SP1 - SP2 caused PC to crash!) - 240Gig worth of drives (2 x 60 & 1 x120 with another 120 gig which died and waiting for me to send it back!) .. new mobo and power supply waiting in the wings for me to buy a 250Gig drive etc. but got to move house first. Oh, and a DVD reader and 2 x DVD writers and a third DVD writer in a duplicator box. ahem ... can't think what I need them for :)

And an Xbox ... purely for passing the time ;-)

Most of it is in the closet boxed right now, so kind of hard to remember but here goes:

520ST (several)
Amiga 500
Amiga 4000 (recently acquired)
Atari 1450 (in 1200XL case)
Atari 800XL
Commodore 64
Commodore 128 with external 3&1/2" FD
Commodore SX64
Commodore 128D
Commodore +4
Timex Sinclair 2068
Timex Sinclair 1000
Apple II GS
Macintosh (68040, PPC, G3)
Apple IIc
Pentium 3 - 1GHz
Pentium 2 - 450MHz
AMD - 700MHz
Pentium MMX - 133Mhz
A few other odds and ends

That is pretty much it. I regret having given up my Tandy CoCo 3 in retrospect. It had a nice Unix-like OS called OS-9.

Started off when I was 8 when I was given an 800XL. Added a 1050 disk drive (with DOS 2.0), 1020 printer/plotter, XC12 data recorder, AtariLab unit with heat and light sensors. Alas it all got stolen:(

Later had a 520STfm with huge Radio Shack daisywheel printer, later swapped to a Citizen ABC 24-pin colour d/m printer, added 1mb RAM.

Then got a 600XL with 1010 data recorder which had a crap keyboard. Then a ZX81 and 2 +2's, ZX81 was great fun, and sooooo neat but could never get the +2's to work. Later got a +3 128k which was great fun. Also brought an A600 but was not impressed, veru unupgradable and flimsy.

Also had a Megadrive and master system consoles. Brefily had a game gear, didn't like.

Sold that when I moved aborad but now have:

Recased Atari 520STe, 4mb RAM, 30mb hard drive, ET4000 graphics. Upgrading to TOS2.06, hoepfully can add more RAM and a bigger hard drive, also plan to add an EtherNEC card to it.

Atari Lynx

Sega MD and MCD1

Nintendo NES and SNES which my g/f had when we met, though the SNES doesn't work.

Gateway 1Ghz Duron PC with 512mb RAM and 30gb hard drive. Currently no O/S installed.

Dell Celeron 500Mhz laptop PC with 256mb RAM and 4gb hard drive and Win2k pro.

I want to get a TT or Falcon at some point when money permits, and also if the ColdFire project can actually make a working machine, one of them also.
TT030, 10mb/16mb, 3.5" SCSI multi-card reader (2gb CF/512mb SD), Matrix TC1006 gfx card, EtherNEC, Epson GT scanner, VanillaMint | 1040STe, 4mb, TOS 1.62, MegaFile 60, SM125 | Lynx II | 800XL, 64k, 1050 disk drive, XC12 tape deck, MicroLink parallel adapter

4 meg Mega STE (100 meg hd)

I'm sure I have an old N64 around somewhere too :)
and various boring PCs

Now if I could just get ahold of a 4 meg Mega ST, Amiga 1000, Amiga 3000 and a 1040 STFM my collection would pretty much be complete :)

I won't bore anyone with my PC specs, and my collection of old hardware is quite frankly small compared to most of the others shown here, however,
I do have a SNES with SUPER COM pro 1 interface, which is a unit which sits on top of the SNES with a 3.5" floppy attached, and indeed this allows the SNES cartridges to be backed up onto disk(s).
These disk images even work with emulators, I have had this unit since it was released years ago.
I thought I would mention this as I have not noticed any one else claim to have one, even the questionable posts! (you know who you are :twisted: )

I do have a SNES with SUPER COM

I remember something similar.
For about a month I owned a "Super Pro Fighter", which you placed on top of the SNES. It had a 3.5 HD Floppy and a cable connector on the back. EliteNDO released a "sending" utility. With that you could send games from your ST harddrive directly to the memory of the backup unit and play them without using floppy disks. You could also backup your cartridges onto the ST harddrive. Remember seeing some nice Intros/Trainer menus from Atari crews on the SNES back then. Sold it for 800 bucks. I wonder what such a thing might be worth nowadays.

Cheers, Alex.

That's like mine!
Mine is only the 8 megabit version, and thus could not image (or play images) of cartridges larger than this.
It can also format 3.5" floppies to 1.6M!
It has a COM port, and although it says "PC XT/AT/386/486" (wow thats old), on the box, I am amazed that there was ST software for it, particularly since I owned an ST back then, but with no HDD.
I think I have some demos on disk somewhere, you see my friend was at Leeds University at the time doing some Degree of nerdity or other, and he would get SNES images from the net via the Unix servers there, which is how I got Earthlight (check my "what game is this" post somewhere in here).
I will dig out my disks and have a look. :wink:
