Here at Low End Mac, we appreciate older computing equipment more than most – and that extends to more than just Apple gear.
As someone with an active interest it retro technology, I was asked to promote the first ever Vintage Computer Festival SouthEast being held on April 20th and 21st, 2013. It will be inside a former CompUSA and what was their regional corporate offices in Roswell, Georgia.

The Vintage Computer Festival is an international event that celebrates the history of computing. The mission of the Vintage Computer Festival is to promote the preservation of “obsolete” computers by offering folks a chance to experience the technologies, people and stories that embody the remarkable tale of the computer revolution.
Through our event and the Vintage Computer Festival Archives – our publicly accessible archive of computer hardware, software, literature, and ephemera – we promote interest in researching and documenting the history of the computer. Above all, we promote the fun of playing with old computers.
Where is the Apple connection? The festival features the Apple Pop-Up Museum, a large premier exhibit that will welcome each attendee as they enter the festival. It tells the story of how a small start-up company, founded in a garage by two young friends, became the leading consumer electronics and personal computer company in the world.
