    Actively supported, or still running because I haven't found a way of dumping them yet?

    Actively supported - HP DC5100's. 2.8Ghz Pentium4, most are Hyper-Threaded. Just been given 120Gb SSD's and 4Gb RAM to get them through the next year.

    Still running - Elonex ProSentia 1000's. Celeron, 1 or 2Gb, used as thin clients.

    Technically that would be the Atom-based netbook that the groundskeeper uses to check his email, but that's an exception.

    Realistically our lowest spec machines are some bottom-of-the-range OptiPlex 360 machines that have Pentium Dual-Core E5200 processors with 2GB RAM and SATA HDs.

    P4 GHz original RM Allinones, we have a handful of these in a classroom, to be dumped at the earliest opportunity. There is also a 1.8GHz P4 running in an office somewhere.

    Got 3 or 4 Athlon 64 machines from 2006-07, all different models. Will go this year, apart from one in the server room which I just use to connect to switches and test things, works fine for what its needed for

    Also got a 10 year old Fujitsu Celeron laptop driving an old plasma screen in one room. It's secondary to the Smartboard so no need for anything newer to drive it

    HP DC7700s with 3Ghz or so P4s, 2Gb Ram and SATA HDDs think that is about the lowest now, they grindr along but for what they cost me at the time (about £140 from ICT Direct a few years ago now) they have done very well indeed They are being religated to info / TFT drivers such as the CCTV screen in the Site Managers office, general info screens etc.... as they run PPT fine once up and running
