One of those super old HP Slim desktops.

 

I still have it, but it's in pieces in the corner of my room. I can't remember why I kept it..

Acer Aspire M3910. Had an i3-550 and a GT330. One of them will be turned into a home server while the other one will stripped down to spare parts.

Well from personal experience, Dell tends to lock you down when it comes to hardware upgrades. For example, My vostro 400 (which is still active in use but not by me) has a Core 2 Quad Q6600, a 64-bit cpu but is held back by a 32-bit motherboard...so it is stuck at 4GB

My family has a 10-15 year old one. Not gonna bother with the make or specs.

To love is to risk not being loved in return. To hope is to risk pain. To try is to risk failure, but risk must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.

Well, I, unlike some people, love Apple computers so these still hang around. I also have leftovers from a Lenovo desktop that I use frequently (the leftovers, case, a case fan, Core 2 Quad that's lived a full life already and the disk drive)

IBM PS/2 386 @ 20MHz, 2MB ram 80MB HDD with windows 3.1 and IBM DOS 4.0(DOSshell)

After that I've built every PC for myself and have only bought 2 laptops and a single HP all-in-one for my father to "go to the facebook", which was a BIG mistake.  Ended up replacing the HP all-in-one in less then 2 years because of how crap HP is..
