    Many people upgrade their computer and i was wondering, what do you do with the old parts? Toss em in the trash? Sell em?

    use em to upgrade older machines, or give em to friends, or save em for spares/testing/troubleshooting purposes

    this post is guaranteed 100% parrot-free

    Or stuff to try and put together a 2nd or 3rd or 4th computer with. Unless its 486 or back stuff, or broken stuff beyond repair, I keep it, and the boxes, and manuals.

    i keep everything and when i have enough junk laying around (here we have a tip that sells old comp parts also that i go to once a week) i put together comps even 486s if that is all i have then i give to the comps to familys that have kids at high school that dont have the money to buy one norm the comps wont go on the net but at aleast have an os and a word proccessor that they can use at home then take a floppy to school to print and more often then not the parents after seeing how helpfull comp can be for their kids save up some money to get a more recent comp and when they do they give me back the old one which i then pass on again

    give it to somebody, or donate to an institution.

    there's always someone, somewhere, who can make a good use of them.

    that also applies to other things, not only old computer parts. i mean, clothes you don't use anymore, and things like that.


    :'( :'( :'( such a nice post.
