I have a rauland 2524....
We have a RML 380Z although it has been stored carefully somewhere :-/
One of the guys in the office claims to work like a machine and he's over 40. Does that count?
We still use an AS400, GX1 (for low bit campus radio streaming), a handful of HP 5s, a handful of HP 4000/4050.
Oldest desktop wise is a Pentium D 2.8ghz, still have a few of those around.
Oldest laptop is probably an RM based P4 with windows 2000 on which i use purely for reconfiguring switches with serial cables.......i really need to get myself a usb to serial adaptor but the RM laptop was one that was never used (teacher had it before i worked there, ended up in a cupboard, came back to us in immaculate condition) and it's actually surprisingly quick and it'll probably stay that way so long as i never connect it to the internet
Oldest server, still using a HP DL320G5 as our digital signage server.
Oldest PC in use currently: RM-branded P4s with 512 MB of RAM.
Oldest in use by September: custom-build Core 2s with 4 GB.
Oldest server currently in use: RM-brand... thing from 2006 with a single Xeon and 2 GB RAM.
Oldest by September: HP DL580 G5s w/quad-core Xeons and 16/32 GB RAM (old, but still powerhouses).
Oldest thing we have: Probably an OMR machine from 1984 that I found under a desk. Apparently came as part of the school's first(?) SIMS contract; what really got me was that it's still sealed in packaging!!
Got to be several Linksys switches - hard to convince that even if they are still working they would still be worth replacing. Got an electrical rewire ongoing at present so suspect the post 2005 beasties might make the decision themselves post trying to switch them back on. Last year though we found the keys for several storage areas the now retired Deputy Head (original IT Supremo) had stored redundant kit in, many, many, BBC's and even older kit with hoofing great CRT monitors by the dozen - ouch my back
We've got 2x Dell 2600 Servers here, all the SCSI drives are dead so they are sitting under my desk waiting to go to Server heaven.
Although I may strip out the cases and custom build a server.... The cases are solid!!
We had an old server with dual PIII processors still in use up until this time last year. So glad we're virtual now
The windows millenium edition laptop is still going strong with our bell timer
a couple of IBM thinkpads from 2000 and a reliable but slow Tempus p2 2001 that powers our CCTV system most of the rest is circa 2006-2008 and a few new bits are being added each year!
