What’s the oldest working computer hardware you still have?



This is a good time of year to think about cleaning out your old electronic (junk) equipment and make room for the new. Now, I’ve had a tendency to hang onto legacy hardware longer than I should. (I’m sure I could dig up a working 5 1/4″ drive somewhere and probably a motherboard that would support it.) So, I thought I’d open this up and ask – what’s the oldest (working) computer hardware you still have?

    Wow – so that TI-994a is almost 28 years old?

    Is it just me or were the design specs on older hardware tighter – leading to longer service life?

    Today everything is just geared to be faster|bigger and cheaper, longevity doesn’t seem to enter the picture.
