The oldest device I use is my trusty old white iPhone 4 running 5.1.1 for Music/Internet Radio. It has got a new battery and lasts for days without a charge

Used to be my 1967 Lafayette LT-425t reciever in conjunction with my 70s Kenwood record player. Although I haven't been able to set all my audio equipment since I last moved.

Occasionally I'd use my early 2000s Pentium desktop for gaming and running old programs but it's been having issues properly turning on and booting up.

My mixing console is from the mid 80s. My reel to reel is around that age as well. My Canon AE-1. Love that little camera so much. Some old CB radios from Radio Shack. My area actually has a fairly lively CB community and its really fun to listen in.

I use a laptop from 2003 pretty regularly when I need to go full stealth mode. It's still running with no issues. In those days, laptops were more professional tools and expected to be tough, utilitarian, and to last. Not like the disposable crap of today.
What laptop do you use if I may ask? I'm in the market for something similar.

An old thinkpad. Best laptops ever, imo. Will soon be replacing this one, though. It's just a little too slow these days.

i used to use an ipod classic until its hard drive shit the bed. just one day some tracks just wouldn't play anymore. looked at diagnostics and sure enough, bad sectors galore. so i bought a replacement used one because they discontinued production in 2014, and its drive was even fucking worse. went on to spotify after that. i miss ripping whatever from soulseek and deezloader, cutting my own tracks from live shows on youtube etc.

I have the exact same Canon! Probably one of the oldest things I still use as well

If you still have the iPod and only the HD's dead, you can get flash modules to really easily put micro-sd's in just about any of the old iPods :)
