Sure, the PS/2 Model 25 and 30 were 8086.
There's a lot of x86 gear still in production in industrial environments.
I've got a customer running part of a semiconductor line on industrial 286s
with no plans to retire them anytime soon. Not the oldest systems I support
for $day_job by far. And of course there's plenty of hobbyist interest in
older x86 stuff.
