    Power Mac G4 from 2005...still going strong. I've replaced the battery a couple of times though. My primary computer, however, is a 2010 MacBook Pro...it's a lot easier to open and repair than the G4.

    First one I used was a Commodore PET at work...no hard drive, no disc drive...and it took at least 5 minutes to save anything to the external tape drive. More a novelty than useful.

    The Compaq Presario is 20, now. The new ATX-power adapter works fine and more silent. :)

    I’ve got a 2001 or 2002 iMac that still runs pretty well.

    Do phones count? My first real cell phone was a 1996 Alcatel, still got it, got two actually, I bought one for my missus at the same time. Phone, text and that's about it. Sim the size of a credit card, all on analogue.

    Hmm, we still have the Commodore 64 down in the basement. Once in a while I've been tempted to try and fire it up, just for the heck of it.

    I finally plugged it in and, it works!

    Sadly, it thinks it is new out of the box, and wants me to out on the boot disk. Of anyone out there has a Microsystems boot disk, either 3.5 or 5 inch, let me know...
