Oldest IT equipment in your School?
Ok it doesn't work and I've got nothing left that would read it, but I was clearing out an old cupboard and found it. It made me chuckle....

Dell Optiplex 260 512mb RAM Windows XP running the CAD-CAM cutter in DT. It's old, slow, cranky and occasionally needs reminding who's boss but it's still working so it's not going to get fixed...

Oldest in real use is our onsite proxy server, Dell Poweredge 2550, dating to 2001. Dual P3s with 2GB RAM. Running Debian 5. Works sweet, being replaced in a couple of weeks!

Dunno officially, but it's probably my Rock 8889 laptop which is a BYOD. I have no idea as to how old it is but it gets used quite regularly. It's my Linux haven in a jungle of M$.

We have a computer here that's about 11/12 years old and still has Windows 2000 on, it's used in the warehouse and is very active use as well.
