Re: How old is your main home PC in 2013
The main desktop is about three or four years old. I chose 4 just to be on the safe side. It has a foxconn A6VMX motherboard, AMD Athlon X2 @ 2.8 GHz, 4 Gb ram, about 710 Gb HD, and integrated ATI graphics. I bought it incredibly cheap from a friend (with much less ram and much less hd space) about a year ago, and it's been running Debian stable since then.
The oldest computer in the household, although not the main one, is a 12 year old Dell inspiron 2500 laptop, with a pentium III coppermine cpu @ 800 MHz, 256 Mb ram, and 20 Gb hd. I got it for free from my brother in law, who was going to throw it away about a year and a half ago. Fortunately enough, I had enough spare parts to replace what was missing (ram, ethernet port, etc), and it's been running Debian stable, also, since then.
