What is your oldest computer?
« on: March 09, 2016, 04:45:46 pm »
So today I came home to find a large box which contained two TRS-80 color computer 2s that I had ordered in it, I'm very excited to try them out. So I was wondering what is your oldest computer? and do you still use it?

I have a Windows 98 Pentium 3 machine from about 2000.
I just use it for DOS games and games from when I was younger (Sonic R) that won't run on Modern Windows.

Also it is good for flashing ROMS to my GBA flashcart when I want to mess about with homebrew and crap.

My oldest computer was an Acer. It's long gone now.

I've got one of these, customer at work gave it to me. It's a Mitac with a whopping 3GB hard drive, ran Windows 3.1 as standard from the box

I have one of those tower computers. I believe it's from around 2007 but I'm not 100% sure

It sure is. This was back when a mouse was a new thing as well, and they used old 9-pin serial ports. I think this one also had one of those old parallel ports on the back to plug in a printer as well.

      The oldest computer in my home is a 2006 Dell desktop computer. It's still running Windows XP till this very day. Unfortunately, the computer barely works because it's 10-years-old. It also has a lot viruses on it, and majority of it's memory is used due to my parents. I tried to get on it last year, but I couldn't get passed the welcome screen. The computer was very realiable when we first bought it. It doesn't seem like it's been a whole decade, but it has been. Now, my parents have their own laptops. I'm the only one without one now because I have the iPad. To be honest though, the iPad is better than both of their computers. My mother had to reset her hardrive on her 2010 Sony laptop twice because it's managed to completely stop running Windows all together.
