So, a while back, about 8-10 years, I read this book and I can't remember the name of it. It was set in a post-apocalyptic world. A world where technology use to exist. There were technological deserts, deserts of rust and corrosion. These "robots" became reactivated and began stealing peoples brains. They would chop the top of the head off and take the brain back to this repository to store. Near the end you meet the immortal who has forgotten a lot of information because his brain can only hold so much.

I know this is a rough description of the plot. As said, its been a while since I read it. Has anyone else read it and know what the titile is?

I am pretty certain that the book you are after is The Pastel City (http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/h/m-john-harrison/pastel-city.htm), which is the first book in the brilliant Viriconium series of M. John Harrison.
