I’m Justin M. Salvato, a fan and collector of vintage computers.  This blog is dedicated to the very first computer I have ever owned: The Coleco ADAM.  It is also my favorite.   The goal of the blog is to provide information about the ADAM as well as the software and hardware that were created for this vintage computer system.

  1. Love your ADAM Blog…like yourself it was our family’s FIRST computer (w/ a Colecovision built in!) Those were some of the happiest times of my care-free life as a kid growing up in a technologically ever-changing world…Sometimes, I long to turn back the clock and revisit those simpler innocent days, even if it means giving up ALL the technological progress that has been made…Your blog (especially the pic of you using your ADAM as a kid) has brought back many fond memories….KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK! 🙂

    • I really appreciate the feedback and I completely agree. There’s something special about computing in those days, which is probably why I have a row of vintage computers lined up in my “man cave”, with the ADAM being my favorite.

      I hope you visit again and comment some more. There will be more entries 🙂

  2. Thanks for creating this Coleco ADAM blog. I ran into it by accident while searching for a way to hook up my ADAM to my HDTV or monitor. I no longer have access to to the older UHF/VHF type TVs any longer and wasn’t sure if an RF to cable adapter would work. If you have any ideas or suggestions I would appreciate any feedback. In the meantime, I’ll continue to look forward to more entries in your blog!
