    smashing electronics with a hammer is always fun, or shooting them... there are people that still sell such things at computer shows and all, but they usually buy old office setups and buy like hundreds of them at a time, so they get them for very little money and doubt it would be worth a trip to such a store to sell them just one.

    dumpster /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif Actually you could try taking it to your local Good Will or some other kind of charity and letting them have it. They will even give you a reciept and you can write it off at the end of the year on your taxes.

    O yeah and if you toss it take the hard drive out and make sure to completely destroy it or if you donate it then at least format it. You dont want some bum finding your checking account number while he is trying to look up www.dumpsterqueen.com /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    yeah, i'd vote to give it away. Not to goodwill though...they will just sell it for too much to an unsuspecting family. Give it to someone local with kids and poor and let them explore it.

    just make sure you remove all of your porn first /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    First desert trip for my boys we put a couple hundred rounds of .223 into an old computer and keyboard. After all the headaches it gave me over the years, it felt pretty good. We brought the keyboard back and hung it on the wall of the IT dept.

    Anyone want an old Apple? We have one we want to let go. It is a PowerPC 8500/132. Keyboard, mouse and 15-16" monitor.
