Welcome to our site dedicated to vintage computers !
Why 1000 bit ?

the bits history.
Why are we here ?
For fun. Yes, that's all, for fun.
We are working at this site in our spare time, and so sometime you could find
this site not working or with strange errors, but don't worry, at the end,
everything will run fine, perhaps !
We are collecting not only computers, but also manuals, documentation,.
brochure, advertisings, tips & tricks, infos and everything about old
computers and people who invented and worked on them, with them.
If you notice that the site is not updated often as you would like, remember: we
are playing with our old computer !

our first goal, after that there is all our passion in this hobby that bring us
to find the old manuals, to try to repair these machines or simply to polish

but also old advertising, old brochures, old magazines or manuals.

How add a computer to your collection ?
First you need to find the computer in database, then you'll find on the left
a link button to add that computer to your collection and then you can
add others info like acquisition date, the status of the machine etc. etc.
