+ - What to do with unwanted desktop computers? 2

Submitted by MarioMax
MarioMax writes: I've recently acquired several (3-5 year old) desktop computers from various family members. They are far from the latest and greatest machines, but they do a good enough job for checking email and playing web-based games. The problem is that I have no personal use for them, and other members of the family have no use for them either. It seems a shame to send them off to a recycling center when they're still perfectly servicable. What should I do with them?

What to do with unwanted desktop computers?

  • Donate your PCs to Good Will. If you really want to, you can wipe the HDD, however deleting personal data and then wiping the free/slack space may provide more value to the charity.

  • You could donate them. Their are tons of churches or organizations out their that would be thrilled to get them.

Air pollution is really making us pay through the nose.
