Man collects old Apple devices – level 3

31-01-2024 15:00

Dubai resident and enthusiast Jimmy Grewal has an impressive collection of around 200 Apple computers and accessories.

Grewal says that his collection is very important to him; it’s a snapshot into his childhood and his memories. He either owned or used all of the devices, or they were the ones that he wanted to own as a child.

Many of the computers in Grewal’s collection weren’t commercially successful, and it was a sign for him that if you keep trying, eventually you would have success that the world would remember.

Grewal will sell an Apple-1 computer on eBay to fund pop-up exhibitions of his collection. Last year, he was invited to an event where he met Steve Wozniak, one of the Apple founders, who signed an original Apple-1 computer for him.

Difficult words: enthusiast (a person who’s very interested in a particular activity or subject), snapshot (a photograph that’s taken quickly; a picture of a memory), pop-up (temporary).
