    Hmmmm I think mine would probably have to be my Xbox I bought in 2005 (second hand). Thanks to some mod help from InsaneNutter and with XBMC I still watch DVDs on it sometimes :)

    Guess it would be either The original game boy ive still got or maybe the mk1 megadrive.
    As i seem to never be able to part with my old systems there are several sat in boxes in the loft.

    Atari 2600 VCS. My 3 year old loves it and my 1 year old still can have fun makeing it beep and bloop. I still enjoy a good round of "Frostbite" on it. In my opinion it was Activisions best title for the system.

    I had a Spectrum in my youth and a ZX81 before that...happy days.
    recently picked up Comic zone and Cool spot on my megadrive again.Still played really well.Think the platform stuff like these and Sonic have lasted the best.

    Well then, it's Dell's GX 270 (2004).

    God damn this small tower it's always so noisy.

    It doesn't even read DVDs, it just plays CD nor does it burn 'em.
