I've had the desktop for about a decade (it's been through a few upgrades)
I finally retired the family desktop this fall. It started out in life as a Pentium II, 266 MHz, with 256MB RAM and a 20G hard drive almost 15 years ago. When I first got it my internet access was via dialup at 56K, which seemed blindingly fast compared to the baud rates I was used to.

When the motherboard failed it was a Pentium III, 600 MHz with 640MG RAM and a little over 500G spread over three drives. The only part of the thing that was still original was the case. I'd replaced the motherboard/CPU once, RAM a couple times, hard drives several times, and so on. It was being used as a print server and for shared disk space.

I salvaged the hard drives and the case. I just don't have the heart to chuck the thing.
