RE: [midatlanticretro] Re: What do *you* still use that's "vintage"?
I have two Apple IIe’s, an Apple IIgs, connected to daisywheel and dot matrix printers. I have an IBM PS/2 Model 60 connected to IBM Proprinter also a IBM PCjr also connected to a IBM Proprinter. I don’t use them on a daily basis, but I do use them.
My vacuum cleaner is from 1956-57. I have a collection of IBM Typewriters, and I will soon be restoring a Lady Kenmore washer and dryer from 1973, and I’m currently trying to locate a either a Maytag or Speed Queen wringer washer.
Is that vintage enough, LOL?

- I still regularly use my TI SR-10 calculator.
An Apple 1400 Powerbook and Stylewriter printer.
HEY! If tools count, some of mine date back to WWII. Of course, they
were my Dad's.
- My Panosonic KX-P1092i keeps working as lexmarks and other ink jets
that are supposed to replace it drop dead.
