You havn't even clarified whether you mean individual machine, or design.
Individual machine: stonehenge
design: abacus

Continuously connected? or just the oldest machine that is now connected?
For example: if today somebody connects a Univac, would that count?
Are you really after which machine is the oldest of those that are
connected? or are you REALLY after whgich machine has been connected
