What to do with a bunch of old computers?

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
So today my friend's dad is taking me to his office...because he has a storeroom of computers/laptops they don't need anymore. I was just wondering what i should look for and any other suggestions/ideas.

Part them out on here and get us to pay for shipping.

Look for RAM, any HDDs, any Processors that aren't old but not really new.

They're all valuable.

you'd be lucky if they were p4's. there's tons of little projects you could do with that old stuff. anything older would be a waste of electricity...

yeah you could build a folding farm...thats a good idea...

You could do some cool freebies

35 reps is really not that much...would only take you a month or 2 to get them if you worked on it maybe less.
