When I first heard that there would be a vintage computer show in Atlanta on March 20th and 21st, I was excited. Then, I read that a traveling Apple “Pop-Up” Museum would also be there. Being an Apple fanboy, this heightened my excitement to 11.
I soon discovered that the show would be held in an old CompUSA store… which somewhat dampened my enthusiasm. What type of show was held in an abandoned retail store?
I shouldn’t have worried.
The show was fantastic, with an amazing collection of hardware, much of it working (my older son and I played some classic Atari 2600 and Commodore 64 games, as well as in a LAN party of DOOM). And the Apple museum was fantastic, very professionally done… with EVERY. MAC. EVER.
Congrats to the guys at Vintage.org for putting together a great show, and here’s some pics:
