Breaking: People Use Old Computers!

This image was lost some time after publication.

I've had my fair share of tech support jobs in the past and I have seen some damn old computers that people want be able to run Doom III on, but this takes the cake. A Mac SE showed up at an Apple store with a customer deciding it was maybe time to upgrade. He had been using the machine since its release back in 1988 or so to do banking. This machine has 1MB of ram and an 8MHz processor. It obviously got the job done for over 15 years, so why upgrade?
