IBM PC model 5150, whole thing, still works. It has a monochrome monitor, no HDD, 2 floppy 360K drives, and 512 KB RAM.

actually i have 2 commodore 64s but they are really my parents. I purge my tech closet every year or so. I won't be needing to do that now though that i don't use PCs anymore. Apple stuff is much easier to sell for a decent amount when you're finished with it

Probably a 9400GT. It's either that or an Athlon II X4 620 and motherboard from that time.

a compaq contura 4/33C

still works, some business I worked was going to throw it out almost 3 years ago. screen is quite faded but visible inside and the hard disk still works, it has 3.1 and chip's challenge on it

thinking of making a video destroying it to piss off luddites

Mine has its cables cut.
I have a Philips VG8020 though and it's more interesting.

An iPhone 5. The thing is absolutely ancient, Jesus Christ. We've progressed so much since then. Why bother keeping anything that isn't new? Just wastes space.

I've got a stack of regular 4/25s, don't really know how I keep finding them

>thinking of making a video destroying it to piss off luddites
that would be a shame more than anything, the 4/33c was the most expensive and probably the rarest of them all, the contura itself is historically notable as one of the earliest PC subnotebooks and a real trendsetter, not to mention that god awful trackpoint

just wreck a pmmx-era shitpad 300 if you're feeling edgy, it will get thinkshit autists into the fray as well and you won't be damaging something of any real rarity or historical significance

Among my Socket 370,478 and 754 motherboards,this is one of the GPUs I found.

Still works. It's a Gecube Radeon 9550 256MB AGP8X.

I've got a commodore 64 in the loft along with 486 era components.

>>51499295

I have a loose E2180 cpu laying around. It's basically worthless.

Of that same LGA775 architecture, you can buy an E8400 or Q6600 for like $10 nowadays and those chips vastly outperform the E2180.

Well it still works to it's credit. I was thinking of doing a retro build from spare parts I had laying around the office, but I'm too lazy.

It wasn't so much Soyo as it was that they used the shittiest VIA chipsets possible to cut costs.

Two HDDs, one is WD 500gb 5400rpm that is probably close to 10 years now, seen a lot of torrents, really raises questions how it's still running, but doesn't seem like it will die any time soon either
Another one is also WD, 256 gb and 7200rpm, I took it out from some proprietary workmachine but it was old as fuck, so I can only guess it's about 10 year old too, only powered on for 150 days, according to Speccyâ„¢, but going up in flames at 58C, so I guess all muh gaymes will die pretty soon

Oldest working computer is pic related, a GRiDCase 1520, came out in 1986.

Fun facts:
These laptops were used by the military and on the space shuttle (I actually have a copy of the flight software around here somewhere)
The model previous to this one was the sentry gun terminal computer in Aliens
The mode l previous to that one was the GRiD Compass, which was the first laptop ever
