All this talk about what will be considered collectable is most
interesting. Being the curious type, I am going to bring up an original
stock IBM PC to sell (or trade) at the VCF. A friend of mine and I are
going up and taking one of the spots with power to sell and trade off
triplicates in my collection and duplicates in his. I say "triplicates"
since I always like two pieces of each piece of hardware (if I can find
them.) The VCF sure looks like a great opportunity to meet other collectors
and fill in pieces of our collections!
