Mine gave up the ghost last week. It was only 3 years old. Dug out an old Toshiba, gave it the RAM from the dead one and all's well again!

Mine died too! Swapped the motherboard several times (faulty replacements from eBay) and eventually got it working again. It is about 10 years old, so can't complain too much...

Mat, was that one they used in Bletchley Park to break the German codes?

Mine is 'only' 7 1/2 years old, but with extra memory and plenty of software housekeeping it runs very well.

It's using its third PSU now, but the rest of it is original.
