Computer history

Some online sources about computers’ history:

A .com site - features a collectors section.

Computer history museum
Missing some info but includes even robots.

Wikipedia pages about computers, home computers, and pesronal computers.
I found the ZX photo there.

Personal timeline:
Sinclair ZX Spectrum
Amstrad CPC 464
Acorn A3000
The first home computer with a RISC and not the PowerPC based computers as Apple stated in some ads (~1990).

Favorite “computing” device:
The Antikythera mechanism (research project).
