Oldest Computer
#1
What is the longest time you have used a computer?

The longest I have used a computer was three years. It was an HP laptop. Nothing was wrong with it, but I decided to take advantage of a sale and buy another as an upgrade. I definitely recommend HP computers.

I have an HP laptop I bought in 2007. It has survived a 9 month-stint to Iraq, 6 other 1-month trips to the desert, and another 3 month trip. This is through very inconsiderate baggage handling practices, and a bunch of sand/sandstorms. Two years ago I bought my new primary and gave that one to my wife. She only ended up getting another because it finally had an OS-issue which corrupted it. Its hardware is still kicking, and it is my backup laptop. I've been considering throwing a Linux install on it to start using it again.

I've always heard the older HPs were pretty long lasting. Unlike a Packard Bell which is likely to exploded at any moment.

It is a brick. I just wish the hardware didn't become outdated so I could keep using it. The only thing it can't do anymore is play the games that are newer. It still did a pretty good job of that for years though.

I'm still using my 2012 Macbook Pro. Works like a charm. Dual core i5, and a 1280x800 screen (not so good).

I also have an old desktop from 2009 that's sitting around. I use it from time to time. CPU can barely keep up, but it's good for storing backups and testing things on various machines. Windows 7, and that's the best part.
