Do you remember the supreme usability of the square mouse, the clean
beige lines of the Apple Classic II, the Apple Lisa and the Macintosh?
Remember the slick sophistication of the clear covetable big bootied
iMac and the portable lightweight Powerbook 150, and what about the
extreme versatility of the SuperDrive Floppy?
Get your nerd on and revisit some old friends this Techweek19 (20 – 26 May) at the National Library.

This event includes many elements of the vintage era predominantly between the 40s and 60s. VVDO 2018 has a full programme of entertainment for the weekend including live bands, car displays, military display, makeovers, fashion shows, high tea as well as loads vendors on site selling a huge range of vintage-inspired and retro products.
Be there for the crowning of the 19 Black Miss Pin Up New Zealand 2018, and join in the fun by entering The Very Vintage Photo Safari, the Very Vintage Bake Off or perhaps the new Dress Making competition.
Make sure you get your glad rags on to be in to win The Best Dressed prizes.
