Please excuse the dangling KVM switch. It's supposed to stick to the underside of the desk, but obviously it doesn't.

350 MHz Intel Pentium II

This is probably the PC I had for the longest time. Its life was extended multiple times, most often by new graphics cards. I can't remember what the original one was, but since then it had had an Asus AGP-V3400TNT, a Creative 3DBlaster GeForce Annihilator Pro, and finally a Creative 3DBlaster GeForce2 GTS.

It also had a Voodoo graphics cards so I could play Outlaws with awesome graphics (for its time) with transparent water and such. :)

166 MHz Intel Pentium

Not too long ago I wanted a PC to play old games on, since they often don't run well (if at all) on new hardware. I should have thought of that before I sold my old 150 MHz PC, because finding old hardware today isn't easy. Unless you buy it used, of course, but then you don't get that "fresh hardware" smell.

After a while I finally succeeded in gathering enough parts to build a complete PC. Many thanks to ApK for CPU and sound card. :)

And yes, I was aware of DOSBox at the time, but it just wasn't (and still isn't) the same.

This PC has the same case as the 350 MHz and is included in the above pictures.

66 MHz 486-DX2

This was my first PC. I can hardly remember the technical details, but I do remember the price tag: A whopping 10,000 DKK, which was quite a lot at the time. It came with DOS 6.22 and Windows 3.11 on disks. Mmm, disks.

Xbox 360 S

The new Xbox 360 S was supposedly "whisper quiet", which is all the reason you need to buy (yet another) Xbox. El-Giganten quickly had an offer for 1,699 DKK, which was hard to resist for a little, fat bastard like me. And it really is quiet.

Xbox 360 Elite

I already had an Xbox 360 Elite (with 120 GB hard drive), but when ShopTo.Net had an offer for an Xbox 360 Elite with 250 GB hard drive, including two wireless controllers and Forza Motorsport 3, for just 240 GBP it was just too tempting.

Now with 120 GB hard drive and HDMI. And it's black. Mmm.

This one is identical to the other Xbox 360 Elite.

Xbox 360

This was an impulse buy. I wasn't really into consoles at the time, but I was pursuaded by the positive reviews. I didn't regret it at all; it's an awesome machine.

I bought this one mostly in order to play the platform and driving games that aren't released for the PC. I haven't used it much.

PS Vita

I've hardly used my PSP, but when I learned that Uncharted: Golden Abyss was going to be released exclusively on the PS Vita, I really had no choice. It's a pretty cool device, but there's not a lot of "must have" exclusive games for it.

PSP

I bought this for CoolShop bonus points. I only have a small collection of the so-called "Minis" games.

Nintendo 3DS

I bought this one mostly to try its "3D without glasses", which actually works surprisingly well, although you do have to hold the device at a very specific angle.

Amiga 500

I spent quite a lot of money on my Amiga, but of course that was back when hardware was very expensive. I had about a thousand pirated games for it, but I threw them all out some years ago. The Amiga didn't work properly anyway (the disk drive had trouble reading), and later I ended up giving it away.

One of the most annoying things about the Amiga is the lack of compatibility between KickStart versions. Some games require a specific version in order to work properly. I once installed a KickStart switch thingy, so I could switch between version 1.3 and 2.04, which solved most of the problems.

Another annoying thing if the RAM configuration. Some games require a certain minimum of RAM, which is fine, but others are so intolerant that they require a specific amount (no more, no less) of a specific type (chip or fast) of RAM.

Commodore 64

You're not a real nerd if you don't have (had) a Commodore 64. Or a tape drive. Or a 1541 disk drive. Or all the classic games. Or an Action Replay MK VI that could load 200 blocks in 6 seconds.

Power 3000

My very first computer. I remember bringing it to school and entering a program (that played music) without having a screen attached. (What? I told you I was a nerd.)

Unfortunately, I don't have this computer anymore, and I never took any pictures of it.
