Oldest Computer, Game console, or electronic device you own.

Post by Spook of the lost » 2 weeks ago

Everyone has technology they keep for years, some of us even intentionally hunt this stuff down.

for me it's my PS/2 model 50 (16 bit 286 Computer), my atari 2600, and a sony trinitron from 1974 I use for testing really old hardware that just doesn't work on most equipment.

I like collecting old tech and restoring/tinkering with it... also wood grain aesthetic with brushed aluminum and dark grey/black bits :P

Aside Nintendo Game & Watch Rain Shower (1983), I got Master System 1990 (1988 model).

The oldest console I own would be a Sega Mega Drive (a.k.a. Sega Genesis). I got it second-hand from my cousin in 2002 (by which point it was already very dated), and I think I only used it once :P .

Kyng: you're lucky, there are tons of great games on the genesis, I'm biased of course because I've owned one most of my life but every time I turn around I find out about more great games for it that I've had to go find and play.

plus occasionally new games are released for it by fans... not nearly as much as the dreamcast but still :smirk:

it's something nintendo has kinda made difficult and so it's much more rare there.

In terms of game systems, probably the N64. I don't think we have our Sega at this point or I'd say that.

In terms of computers... I know hiding in this house somewhere are these computers we bought when Circuit City was liquidating? :'D

woah, that was a long time ago... I remember going to circuit city once back in middle school.

the place where it was is now a hazel's, which is like the supermarket equivalent to a liquor store.

Yeah, I used to go to Circuit City a lot as a kid, so when we heard they were closing, we just *had* to see what their liquidation deals were. The little computers we got were called Q1s. I forget the brand, but they were pretty nifty. Too small for my dad to deal with easily, early touch screen technology and it came with a USB keyboard and a carrying case. When I first saw a Microsoft Surface I was like, "Q1 remake?" xD
