    DUCT TAPE FTW!!!

    I had an old PC from late 90s early 00s. Lovely Pentium 3 1ghz processor, 512mb of RAM and a 20gb HDD, I pushed that thing to its limit!

    My little sister has a dying Dell from 2003 time, 2.6ghz Pentium 4. Its slowly dying, running slow as shit but she doesn't care it streams anime for her.

    HAHA! I'll call you on that and raise you a few years more:

    I have a Dell Latitude CPx from the year 2000

    And I'll also outdo your pic with a vid I made when I upgraded a few months ago:



    Beat that [​IMG]

    ...why am I so excited about comparing junk? Meh...

    EDIT: here are some of the specs:

    12GB HDD
    maxed out at 512MB DIMM RAM
    650mhz Pentium III
    1x USB 1.0 (ouch...)
    8MB ATI Rage Mobility Graphics Card (double ouch...)

    the oldest one I still have, that is still functional:

    Cyrix 6x86 262 mhz processor on what seems to be a "Delphi III" motherboard
    128 mb SDRAM
    7 GB HDD across two drives
    3D Rage IIC onboard video
    Creative 4x CD-ROM

    OS: (drumroll please.....) Windows XP SP2

    the most impressive thing it runs is Quake 2

    I have an ancient Toshiba laptop my dad got from his old college (each professor got one):
    Windows 98
    Pentium processor
    64MB of RAM
    800x600 screen (the old kind that had built in motion blur [​IMG] )
    2GB HD
    1xCD ROM
    1x3.5" floppy
    IR Communications port
    And my personal favorite pointing device of all time, a nub between GBH that you pushed to move the mouse. I had a TON of fun playing SimCity 2000 on this back in the day

    My oldest is probably a C64. Got it stored in a closet and bring it out once or twice a year. Still works great! [​IMG]

    Most broken is an HP laptop from 99-00 or so. Screen died and now it resides, in pieces, in a box somewhere in my house.

    My oldest functioning (in use) hardware would be my sparcstation 5 I guess. My oldest project hardware is prolly a pentium 1 66Mhz which I made into a wall mounted fotoframe, kinda anyway [​IMG].

    In all fairness I think a commadore64 does count as it was a personal computer [​IMG].
