    - 6.4GB IDE Hard Drive

  • I have a Dell Latitude CP and a Compaq Presario 1240. The 1240 was saved from the dump, but I had to be reallyy sneaky about it because they frown upon saving things from there....related to liability.

    The Presario has a bad keyboard - I have one for it but it's still in the package as I have not gotten around to replacing it. It works fine otherwise. The Latitude CP has no HDD or caddy. I got it for $25 with free shipping on ebay. Presario is 266MHz Pentium, Dell is 233MHz Pentium
  • Mine would have to be my trusty old HP Omnibook 800CT. It was made for the (all new :lol: )Windows 95 and has a Intel Pentium processor. I am almost certain that it has 64MB of RAM. I have attached a link to some photos of it for anyone to look at.

  • Commodore 64, if that counts!

    The oldest machine that still gets regular use is a Dell Dimension 4300 with a P4 and 512 MB of RAM and runs Windows XP. The oldest DOS/Windows PC I have is a Dell XPS P133c, which has a 133 MHz Pentium (hence P133c), 32 MB of RAM, and a 1.5 GB WD Caviar hard drive, and runs Windows 95. I'm somehow amazed that the 21 year old hard drive still works to this day, though it hasn't gotten regular use since about 2003.
