I am running tahrpup on a Latitude 131 laptop from 2005. Would not trade it for a new one if it had to run another OS. What antique hardware are you keeping alive running a pup ??

Puppy 412 Retro on a 1999 Compaq Armada 1700, 233 MHz Pentium II, dual-boot with Win95. I use this more than any of my other Puppies!

96 MB RAM, 384 MB swap.

Ive been using old laptops for years. One from '03 died last fall. So cool to know I am not the only one. I think I paid $1000 for this Dell in '05. Still going strong. With Tahrpup, it boots up fast and surfs the net just fine. Finding puppy really helped out. If I did not have this car addiction I would never use Windows.

Toshiba Satellite pro 4300

Pentium 3 - 600 MHz
Puppy 4.3.0
Bios date from 1999
Ultrathin - only 50mm

This one is fully usable today, thanks to the 1 usb slot. OK, extremely slow, but still... Laughing

Be sure to state amount of RAM since that's often the most important factor.

I am running fluppy013 on a 250mb IBM server

Subject description: With youngest users?
 

G'day,

How about the oldest average age network of Puppy computers?

Or the youngest user(s) on the oldest computer(s)?

Here's a last year's shot of my "corner of the world".
Four desktops (HP) above the desk, one below (Medion). All running Puppies on the home network.

Users are the then two four-year-olds on the left (the twins are now 5 and in kindergarten, to their mother's delight), and one then-2-year old (now 3) on the right watching Peppa. He's now just getting into games.

So all were younger than any of the computers they were using.

Some of you have some seriously old stuff.








For the record, my Dell has 2 gigs RAM, an AMD Turion dual core processor and an 80 gig HD. I have a 150 gig HD in my desk That I can slip into it, if needed.
