I first learned about computers using a Wang 3300 at Rocky River High School in Ohio. We used it around '77-'79, until it was replaced with a Digital machine. We used it with half a dozen Teletype machines, and the yellow paper tape - we used to carry the tapes around in cigar boxes.

I'm sure the hardware has been gone for 30 years - the computer teacher, Mr. Evans, was continually having to send out boards to be repaired back in the 70s.

Willy SPREUTELS , Would you ever consider selling the 3300? If not could you send Jim Hi-Res photos of the front and rear panels so he has an accurate reference to copy?

WOW - I was SO amazed to find this site! My first computer experience was on a Wang 3300 in high school, around 1975-1977. We had 4 terminals and a whopping 16K of memory in it. When I found the emulator, loaded x42 into BC, got BASIC running and typed in a little program, it brought me right back to those days - it's the WANG 3300 that started my interesting in computers and prrogramming! So glad someone put this site (and the emulator) together! jimlaing@me.com

Willy, please email me at the contact at the bottom of the page. I'd love to hear more. You might have the only 3300 in existence!
