donate to the museum

We are always looking to expand our collection and enrich our visitors' experience, but we need your help! Computer is dead if not used, it is a pity to keep something in the attic instead of prolonging its life so that new generations learn about the technological past in our museum. We are still searching for the items listed below that we would love to have here in PEEK&POKE, and would gladly take them off your hands if you would like to donate them to the museum. We promise to take great care of them! :)

name:
Apple Lisa
year:
1983
manufacturer:
Apple Computer Inc.
importance:
Lisa is the first commercial computer with a GUI and a mouse. The machine was aimed at individual business users with a five-megabyte hard drive and a shipping price of 9,995 US $. The Lisa was challenged by a relatively high price, insufficient software library, unreliable Apple FileWare floppy disks, and the immediate release of the cheaper and faster Macintosh. Only 10,000 units were sold in two years.

name:
Acorn Archimedes, any model
year:
1987
manufacturer:
Acorn Computers Ltd.
importance:
The Archimedes was one of the most powerful home computers available during the late 1980s and early 1990s; its main CPU was faster than the Motorola 68000 microprocessors found in the more popular Amiga and Atari ST machines.

name:
Commodore 65 (also known as C64DX)
year:
1990 - 1991
manufacturer:
Commodore Business Machines
importance:
The Commodore 65 is a rare prototype computer developed as an improved version of the Commodore 64. The idea was to be backwards-compatible with the older Commodore 64 while still providing a number of advanced features close to those of the Amiga.

name:
20th Anniversary Macintosh
year:
1997
manufacturer:
Apple Inc.
importance:
The Twentieth Anniversary Macintosh is a limited-edition personal computer released to mark Apple's 20th birthday. The machine was a technological showcase of the day, boasting a number of features beyond simple computing, and with a price tag aimed at the "executive" market.

name:
HP computers (We will accept any in good condition from the 60s, 70s or 80s)
year:
60s - 80s
manufacturer:
HP Inc.
importance:
General importance for the computer revolution timeline. We are missing these models: HP 9815A (1976), HP 9831 (1977), HP-87 (1982) and HP-150 (1983).

name:
VR sets from the 90s (We’ll be happy with any VR set from the 90s)
year:
90s
manufacturer:
any
importance:
They are so cool and fun! Unfortunately, many of them gave most customers headaches and severe virtual reality sickness. So they are rare and have perished mostly without a trace. Still, they are cool and fun!

name:
Any retro game
year:
any
manufacturer:
any
importance:
For those that were born after the year 2000, retro games may not mean much, but this is where the best video games of today were born. And they are so fun-fun-fun!

name:
Any retro arcade machine cabinet
year:
late 70s - early 90s
manufacturer:
any
importance:
In the past, coin-operated arcade video games generally used custom per-game hardware often with multiple CPUs, highly specialized sound and graphics chips, and the latest in expensive computer graphics display technology. This allowed arcade system boards to produce more complex graphics and sound than what was then possible on video game consoles or personal computers. The joy of play on an old arcade cabinet is hard to beat even today!
