What is The Oldest Laptop You Got Running? {Old Laptop Gang}
 

 
I say laptop because CPUs can be gutted and redone.

I got my "2006 E1505 Dell Inspiron" Running; My First laptop and computer. I'm a hoarder of technology, i keep everything, i still have my sega and dreamcast for fu*ks sake lol; I decided to see if i can revive this thing.

Details:
-Upgraded the Ram from 1gb to 2gb

-Duo Core Processor running T2300 @1.66ghz (2 cores)

-OS: Ubuntu LTS (linux)

i was running windows 10 but im not paying 200 for it and it was running smooth though and that was before i upgraded the ram to 1gb.

Using it for basic sh*t, web browser, writing and a hub for my hobbies.

2006 still running. Next i need to refresh and clean it out. Dell made quality sh*t, the mouse is from 2006 too.

I got a sudden interest in running old tech for some reason. Anybody running an old laptop? any tips to make it run smoother and faster?

Oldest running machine i have is an acer netbook i bought in 2009. Still runs good. Its a 1.6ghz intel atom processor with 160gb hd and it came with 1gb sodered onto the mobo which i later on added a 512mb stick in the only empty slot it had. It runs windows xp and i still use it to modify things like psp’s and snes classics, and download stuff. Its slow as fu*k compared to my macbook and old dell desktop but its served me well this last decade

2008 Sony Vaio running Windows 7
I use it for FL Studio & Mastering since all of my cracked software & Plugin's are on there.

Late 2011 MacBook Pro
Upgrade the Hard Drive to an SSD
Upgraded the Ram to 16GBs
I'm going to have to replace the battery soon but it runs like new & the upgrades were a hell of a lot cheaper than buying a new MBP.

i got my new battery from amazon from a company called BND for 25 bucks, battery fitted like OEM and i have no issues just follow the instructions on depleting the battery and re charging it. i dont know if they make one for your computer, i would search they probably do.

a toshiba satellite I got in 2012. still running windows 7. mouse pad is unusable. it takes a minute to read the usb ports. battery life is about 95 seconds. runs loud as hell if I'm running 2 or more programs.

got a replacement for it last year but I'm using this one until it just refuses to boot up anymore.
