    Seemingly custom-built 486 PC. That's the only thing I can remember about it, as it isn't in my house right now but is in our small storage unit from when we moved to a smaller house.

    A 2007 HP Pavilion dv-6000. Installed Linux on it a few days ago, surprisingly it runs pretty well.
    As for specs:
    GPU: Nvidia 8400m GS
    CPU: AMD Turion x64
    RAM: 2GB DDR2 (lol)
    And some 16:10 TN display

    Has a great keyboard though, wish they installed those on modern laptops. I even find in better to write than my desktop keyboard.

    My oldest desktop is the one I built a few months ago, but the oldest laptop is a Compaq Presario C700. Can't wait until the school upgrades and I can take a few monitors and computers :)

    I wouldn't call it a computer anymore, but I found this at my school.

    If it's just computers, a laptop from 2008.

    If it's also phones, a Motorola from the early 90s.

    2002 Compaq Presario 6000 with Windows XP Home Premium and an Intel Pentium 4. It was a beauty and it's performance was greater than most other PC's during it's time period. Came with a CRT monitor as well, and boy was the circuitry 100% analog.

    Depends. Was your Miracle Machine stolen around 2008? ;)
    That was the rig that really got me into gaming. I found Rigs of Rods while doing a middle school report on aircraft, so my uncle sold me his extra parts for cheap so I could get a rig that played games better than the aforementioned P4. RoR led to GTA, to Battlefield, to Cod, Skyrim, Minecraft, and 10's of thousands of hours of my time wasted :D

    Haven't been active enough the past few years to know inside references, so I hope you don't mind me asking, what was your Miracle Machine?

    It was an upgraded Dell XPS 400. It had a Pentium D 820, 4GB RAM, and an 8800GT from a Mac. The boot loader was on a PATA HDD, with Windows on a SATA one, because my incompetent self failed when upgrading from XP. That led to several minute long boot times. I was a rather obscure member of this community while I had it, so I'm not surprised if few people recognize it.
