It isn't "retro" to me, it's just how I live
This is a selection of some of my favourite technological gadgets that I have in my collection. All of these devices I still use regularly today and I enjoy each and every one of them. I would choose any of these devices over their modern day version/replacements in a heart beat. There's something to be said about devices that are designed for specific tasks over today's "smart" devices that do everything.
Asus EeePC 701 Desktop
For a while there, my EeePC netbook also doubled as my desktop PC. I bought my 701 just a few months after they became available on the market. There was just something about them that intrigued me so much, and they ran Linux! It was a handicapped version of Xandros Linux, but It was Linux.
I used the default OS for a few months, but soon replaced it with the much more advanced and usable Mandriva Linux.
Tandy Pocket PC-3. The first mobile computer I ever owned. This is a full fledged personal computer, with BASIC as an operating system. It has 4K of static RAM.
