« on: October 09, 2012, 09:43:01 PM »
As the heading say's really.....favourite does not necessarily mean most expensive!!

Mine would be:

My Oric-1 16k - as I was after one for a long time
SNES - the first console i owned with my own money
Copy of Hobbit for BBC B as spent many hours on this at my best friends when it was released
Complete Sega Genesis set up - Genesis console, Sega CD & Genesis 32X

I know that's four!!!

Well this isn't really going to be hard is it  ;D

The ZX81 was my first computer and after many years my true love has returned and grabbed my heart again, however there are many hours to go before she overtakes the great number spent together as a young teen.

I was also quite fond of my beloved PET now sadly in PET heaven... R.I.P my old friend.

And then more recently i have a Spectrum +3 (well it's a +3e really) alright for a giggle and a laugh at the superior quality of clarity of full coloured hi-resolution graphics  :o

Regards Andy
ZX81 nutter....

Hmm difficult...

Amiga 3000 - Because I spent so much of my time on an Amiga (1000 then 500 + HDD etc.).
SNES - Just too many great games (some I still haven't played yet)
Dragon Professional/Alpha - Because they were produced and are like unicorn poop to find.

Well I guess the things that I have played with mostly recently....

Acorn Atom, little brother to the BBC.
Dragon 32/64/Alpha & Tandy CoCo, still working on DragonMMC :)
Been working on some vintage PC stuff too.

Honorable mention must go to the ZX81 and QL as I clocked up a fair number of hours on them in the past, ZX81 was my first machine, and the QL was what I used through college and university.

But ask me in 6 months and this may have changed.....

Cheers.

Phill.

For me it has to be :

Amiga A500 - one of my favourite machines when I was younger and the first to join my retro collection !
ZX80 - Where would home computing be without this baby  :)
Apple ][ - Took me ages to find one, and got it at a bargain price too  ;D

I'm predictable!

I'm torn between saying Atari 2600 Vader Model or Woody Heavy Sixer
Gotta be my Commodore 16 with my (incomplete) Mastertronic 199 collection
Rubber Key Speccy

All above makes me very ;D

Atari 800 with incognito XL compatibility board with its internal CF card storage it's my main retro pleasure

Atari 7800, a really under rated system with all the awesome homebrew games like burger time (beef drop) pac man collection, scramble etc etc that have been released in the past few years+I can get a 2600 fix at the same time.

Sears Video Arcade, ok so its a 2600, but it is unusual over here, and its a heavy sixer :)

Xbox, the original. so easy to use as an emulation box.
My boxed Atari "Touch me " hand held. Its a hand held with touch me in the title *snigger*

If my 48k Atari 400 gets fixed and video modded then it may be a different story
