    Oh man! Nice!

    I have long ago given away my oldest PCs, but I completely understand keeping this stuff around. I have strong memories of each of these.

    Should add, too, that unti this summer, the oldest PC in my house was probably a 1990-ish Amiga 500. But I had a Mac Plus until a few years ago as well.

    I guess technically it would be my Radio Shack TRS-80 MC-10.  Bought it on eBay several years ago for the nostalgia because we had one back in 1983.  It uses cassettes!

      In reply to ErichK: That's awesome, my first computer was the MC-10. I think somewhere at my parents house I still have the 16kb memory expansion pack and 300 baud DC2 modem.

    I have a 2007 Asus that is the first and only laptop I've ever bought and I still used it on a almost daily basis

    Nexus 7(2013). I tend to not keep very old computers. The only reason I still have that tablet is the known sorry state of Android tablets in 2016. Literally nothing out there to replace it with. So I my iPad Mini 4 is the daily driver.

    Oldest computer I have that occasionally sees some action is an Apple iBook G4 (2003). I need it for some legacy Mac applications.

    I think I have a (probably very dusty) Amiga 500 in the attic.

    Sinclair ZX81 followed by my Commodore VIC-20 and the C64 :)

    My oldest is an IBM PC Jr needs power supply for the monitor but still boots.

    Oldest one I have in the closet is a Digital Alpha PWS 500a, circa 1996 I believe? It was one of the Alpha processor systems capable of running Windows NT, if it were still possible to get a copy :)

    A good old C64 (the new model) and diskdrive and GEOS :-)

    I have a Synertek SYM-1 microcomputer from the late 1970s. My Dad took a microcomputer training class and brought this machine home. I taught myself 6502 assembly language programming on this machine and played such exciting games as "Hunt the Wumpus."

      Nice, I used to have something similar..got ruined in a flood a few years ago though.  I still have some old computer running CP/M as an OS though. (not sure model of it though)

    Damn, my oldest device is a younger compared to the OP. My oldest is a 2009 HP desktop that was an i3/4gb ram however about 18 months ago I upgraded it to i5/8gb ram. It happily runs W10 without issue, for what I personally need it is a beast. I would almost say it runs just as well as my three month old Acer laptop. It is definitely quicker.

    My Atari 800 circa 1979 still works, 48KB of ram, with Atari 810 disk drive.   I bring it out once in a while to play M.U.L.E. and a few other classics.

    I that would be my  Texas Instruments TI-99/4A from 1979  :)  (Power supply is broken though so been a while since I could start it up) 

    Next is probably my wonderful Zenith Laptop , if I remember correctly it's Model #ZFL-181-92.  Got no hard drive, just 2 x 720KB floppy drives , and a 8088 processor he he , but it actually still works.  That one is from 1993

    (Then of course got some Commodore stuff as well in the basement)

    I bought my first PC in 1984, an Eagle portable with a 20 MB hard drive, 640 KB ram and dual 5-1/4" floppy. Had an 8" monitor. About the size and shape of a suitcase. The keyboard was fold up and snapped in place covering the monitor and floppy drives. The carrying handle was on the opposite end from the keyboard. Picture carrying a suitcase with the keyboard on the bottom. Still have it stashed away in a closet.
