Windows 7: What old hardware do you have?

18 Jun 2010   #1

Dual-boot: Windows 7 HP 32-bit SP1 & Windows XP Pro 32-bit SP2.
 
 
What old hardware do you have?

Hello guys,

What old hardware you have either using or as spare? For me I have got a oldish PS/2 keyboard in my room in a drawer as a spare.

Would you count my ancient Windows 95-era laptop as a spare?

Actually, both of my keyboards, and my mouse, have PS/2 connectors. The mouse is only a little under 2 years old though. The one keyboard is definitely the spare, as it is generic and not as easy to type on as the IBM one I'm using currently. I also still have my old XP machine(which dates to 2000 or 2001, I think), and one of those huge CRT monitors for it.
