Exploring a MASSIVE Retro Computer Warehouse!

Exploring a MASSIVE Retro Computer Warehouse!

No joke, this place is truly mind-blowing! Taking a tour of Computer Reset in Dallas, Texas. It’s a closed down vintage computer shop that’s been largely abandoned and has stayed relatively untouched for years. Enjoy the mountains of computer hardware and software.

    Mmmmm, computing technology… 🤤 *Edit* I must find one of these shops near me asap.

    Wish I could get me some old computers PCs to review and use cause I need a old PC with legacy boot.

    It got that American Pickers vibe in a way



  4. Nat Knutson on November 11, 2019 at 6:08 pm

    scrapping all that is a disgusting amount of waste and neglect on the part of who is doing it. I don’t care if it was a bank forclosure or anything, if it works you don’t scrap it en mass like that. Flat out disgusting.

    Think of all the gold



  6. Santiago Gagliano on November 11, 2019 at 6:10 pm

    What a paradise!



  7. Theo Lotz on November 11, 2019 at 6:10 pm

    Do NOT play the drinking game on this video using the keyword "new old stock" …



  8. K McLaughlin on November 11, 2019 at 6:12 pm

    Absolutely incredible find. FYI I’m local and if it you thought it was hot in May don’t come back in July or August.



  9. Juan Gallardo on November 11, 2019 at 6:14 pm

    Spectacular! A nerd from Chile sends greetings



  10. Mackenzie McIntyre on November 11, 2019 at 6:15 pm

    get to go in the summer of 2020 i practically begged my mom to take me



  11. miura cosmo on November 11, 2019 at 6:16 pm

    We need to go in this place and make order and save everything! This is " MEMORIA OF THE FUTURE"….



  12. oetken007 on November 11, 2019 at 6:16 pm

    Now I want to watch an other episode of Mr. Robot…. 😉



  13. Roger Rabbit on November 11, 2019 at 6:17 pm

    Someone call Hollywood. They get their hands on this, they’ll have all the retro set dressing they’ll ever need.



  14. UNDERHILL on November 11, 2019 at 6:19 pm

    Dude… a dozen people could live for the rest of their lives just selling this stuff on Ebay. That warehouse probably has 25 million dollars of old junk in it. A place lost in time is worth a fortune, and that place is MASSIVE.



  15. AllTimeAesthetic on November 11, 2019 at 6:19 pm

    Basically a junkyard for tech



  16. Adrian Campuzano on November 11, 2019 at 6:23 pm

    omg they have a tons of IBM model M keyboards!! i hope they knew what they are destroying or demolishing for scraping idk what they gonna do but dude thats a waste!! those old rare cases can be sold for sleeper builds also!! this is really sad! i hope the owner get back in shape!!



  17. Knugen on November 11, 2019 at 6:23 pm

    u stop



  18. Pp Ss on November 11, 2019 at 6:25 pm

    The first thing I would do is grab 99.9% of all the CRT monitors and dump them in the recycling bin! Then one might be able to see some of the important stuff… The running server is "THE MATRIX".

    Treasury for me oh my god



  20. LGR on November 11, 2019 at 6:26 pm

    Here’s the group mentioned towards the end of the video, join there for info on how to get inside:

    As it is now, Computer Reset is open on certain weekends for a limited number of folks to explore.
    And yes, things are available for purchase! The goal is to save as much from the landfill and the scrappers as possible 🙂



  21. The Devil on November 11, 2019 at 6:29 pm

    Think of all that money



  22. LiK on November 11, 2019 at 6:29 pm

    Maybe it’s just me but people who are into retro tech are usually cool and very nice. Happy to see you had fun and got your wish to check out this place.



  23. Legal Eagle Feathers on November 11, 2019 at 6:30 pm

    This straight up looks like a map out of Half Life 2. Awesome!



  24. Jojo337 on November 11, 2019 at 6:31 pm

    Do you want to come back to this store ?



  25. Nero on November 11, 2019 at 6:31 pm

    Those sthills (the professional name for warehouse shelving.



  26. Strateggo on November 11, 2019 at 6:33 pm

    we need to send one of those Google cars down there to make a map of the place.



  27. Bill Hawkins on November 11, 2019 at 6:33 pm

    How do you stop the destruction, Of unreplaceable hardware like this.
    I don’t know if you’re familiar with The Commodore Amiga. Also from this time period. The most sought after model. An amiga 4000. With all the video toaster hardware and software. And A, CPU card known as the blizzard. This was the Holy Grail For anyone doing video editing in the early nineties.
    Word has it when Commodore Shuddered their factory in Germany. A company was hired For, " Disposal" of And clearing out of everything in the Factory. About 500 amiga 4000’s , Ready to go for video editing all around the world. Were just thrown into dumpsters. The people clearing it all out, Even if they had an inkling of what it was. They weren’t allowed to take any Of it. The few that did the disposal work, told stories that would make a grown man cry. The waste. I mean the terrible terrible waste. Just the hard to find pieces of these machines go for hundreds of dollars on eBay. Let alone 500 fully finished and outfitted machines.
    Buildings the size of this one always get demolished by people that either don’t care. Possibly for nefarious reasons don’t want the world to share in this kind of joy. Seeing just how well built everything was. Computer hardware was made to last forever back then.
    Yes !!!
    Computer speed doubles every year. You’re not going to get a manufacturer to spend more than $20 on the cost of a motherboard for their new factory machines. It’s all disposable now. Obsolescence is Built-in. You’re lucky if it even lasts trouble free for the whole first 6 months. Cheaply engineered mother boards from Dell And Apple On the flip side of the coin; go out like Christmas tree lights now.
    In the era are those machines in that warehouse; you found were from. The hardware was engineered and reeversengineered by the likes of Compaq to last forever.
    The cornerstone of our consumerism based economy. Is to keep buying new stuff every year. Throw away the old stuff. Not just bigger items like your computer. Your car too. Nobody hangs on to anything for years. For good reason, It’s made NOT to last for A couple of years.

    This reminds of exploring an abandoned building in fallout.



  29. Boyke Ramdhani on November 11, 2019 at 6:42 pm

    Can’t believe I’m watching the video until the end. 47 minutes!



  30. Ferret Man on November 11, 2019 at 6:43 pm

    If I was there I would say “how much to by the whole building?”



  31. apple genius team on November 11, 2019 at 6:43 pm

    lot of gold in that building



  32. Michael Davidson on November 11, 2019 at 6:44 pm

    American Pickers: Tech Edition?



  33. Strateggo on November 11, 2019 at 6:44 pm

    Where’s the NeXT?



  34. BmnGameBoy on November 11, 2019 at 6:45 pm

    I would take everything



  35. Aaron Christopher on November 11, 2019 at 6:46 pm

    Ah I’ve driven by this building multiple times!!



  36. N B on November 11, 2019 at 6:47 pm

    23 minutes in and he still hasn’t found a damn thing



  37. symetik on November 11, 2019 at 6:48 pm

    19:10….. DUUUUUUUUUUUUDE…. PLEASE TELL ME ONE OF YOU BOUGHT THOSE 3 BVM’S IN THE CORNER!!! Worth their weight in gold to retro console gamers. Seriously they are going for THOUSANDS A PIECE now and there is multiple repair specialists for them as well. They really are worth a ton of money!



  38. daniel finley-pesti on November 11, 2019 at 6:49 pm

    i mean no disrespect while saying this, but its disappointing seeing these people just allowed to basically litter and dig through shit while making a bigger mess than there apparently already is. he goes on to tell how basically awesome and rare and cool some of this stuff is and not knowing whats actually in boxes labeled certain things but then goes on to him and his friends just climbing on boxes and throwing things around with no fucking respect lmao. kinda bummed me out. like that box you picked up and just threw to the side? couldve broke it down, or idk maybe moved stuff and used a ladder instead of climbing on shit and letting stuff fall over like he said he saw a lot of?? like yeah its not your stuff and it maybe old and some of it “junk”, but its still not yours, you were let in as a guest.. if i were given permission to go somewhere i “dreamed about” and were even allowed to record it why would you even show the parts of you just sorta being trashy? you couldve just snipped those parts out? if i was the family i know i’d be annoyed and not let people with motives like this in. no offense to lgr, love his content, love his videos, love him, just felt some ways after seeing this :s lol sorry 😐



  39. Mr. Moon on November 11, 2019 at 6:50 pm

    One of the best Youtube vids I’ve seen this year. And I’m not even a collector. I just like to learn. Thanks for sharing.



  40. Robby Murren on November 11, 2019 at 6:51 pm

    the lawnmower man is trapped in that server



  41. BorkScorpion on November 11, 2019 at 6:52 pm

    This seems like the kind of place where an employee would go missing and be found a week later, crushed under a half ton of adding machines.



  42. Cameron Hall on November 11, 2019 at 6:55 pm

    I wonder if they have any Apple I computers in there. If so, those would be worth a fortune!



  43. Strateggo on November 11, 2019 at 6:56 pm

    Deus Ex Machina, and he’s in Dallas.



  44. ProudestSheep on November 11, 2019 at 6:57 pm

    Is this place still around? To me it looks like it is true.



  45. Carl Rygwelski on November 11, 2019 at 6:58 pm

    I wish I could have seen this place before it was closed. I was literally in Dallas one month before this video. Long live Retro.



  46. Cameron Hall on November 11, 2019 at 7:00 pm

    Damn, to think of all the digital archaeology this plqce has! Thousands of hard drives with old company files, records, and who knows what.



  47. Higor Ghunter • 64 years ago on November 11, 2019 at 7:01 pm

    Only LGR to stand here and watch a almost 50min video about old tech



  48. 187onaPigeon on November 11, 2019 at 7:03 pm

    I would’ve taken the vending machine. Also Trinitrons. Man, it would be a great project to sell everything on eBay. Shame



  49. John H. on November 11, 2019 at 7:03 pm

    "Oh no, people are coming to the store!? Whelp, I guess we’ve got to shut it down now"
    Seems logical.



  50. colinb31 on November 11, 2019 at 7:04 pm

    The average CRT monitor weighs somewhere around 40lbs. How has the upper level not collapsed in? Now I do understand this is a industrial building so the ceiling and floor joists are likely steel instead of wood, but regardless, that is an insane amount of weight.
