  • You could also give it to a college student studying computer science or electical engineering. He/she would love taking it apart and salvaging worthwhile parts and such. A women's shelter might just find something that old would frustrate the life out of everybody. But a computer geek would learn how to build and rebuild. Think of t as tinker toys for college kids.

  • donate it. There are usually computer recycling programs. Or sell it cheap. People will use old machines as servers or dummy terminals or whatnot else.
    How old are we talking? Like a 4 year old Dell or a Tandy?

  • You could donate it to a womans shelter (after you erase the hard drive!)

  • Jeez...10 years old? Yeah, that's a donor for sure. I doubt you could get $50 bucks out of it.

  • I would donate it to somebody not sure who though

  • I would just get rid of it. My husband's work does an electronic recycling drive every so often and I would take it to that.
