    Sinclair ZX81 (possibly world's oldest working example, original klutzed ROM dated March 1981)
    Sinclair ZX81 (dated 1982)
    Sinclair Spectrum 48K issue 2
    Commodore 64
    Atari 520STFM
    Mac Color Classic

    The older ZX81 and the Speccy are still in regular use, with modern SD card adaptors in place of cassette loading. The C64 was last fired up August 2018 for a fun bank holiday with friends...every single floppy disc still worked. The ST hasn't been run in around 20 years, the Mac a decade.
    Nice!

    I would love a C64 again but am too put off by the power supply / recap requirements. When that new "The C64" comes out i'll get one of those instead, then I can pretend I have a proper one and use it on my modern TV with minimal fuss.

        I still have a Mega Drive and a few games, i don't play it now but i had many hours of fun with it.
        Does anyone remember the Master System? My friend has one that she's keeping for when her son is old enough to play it, it has a few built-in games which is a good start. ☺

              I have an Atari with various game cartridges from the early '80s. I wonder if it'd still work? I'd have to figure out how to attach it to a modern flat screen television though. I used to love some of the games for it; Adventure, Haunted House, Casino, Yar's Revenge, Dolphin, Asteroids, Frost Bite, Pit Fall...
