Older Laptops

Postby Gecko » Thu Apr 27, 2006 8:16 pm

What do you do with older laptops?

I currently have 3 Pentium III laptops one IBM a Toshiba and a Compaq and one Pentium IV HP.
There is nothing wrong with any of them, in fact three of them have good batteries.
Two of them came with windows 2k the other two with windows xp.
These laptops have all been wiped clean, formatted and the OS reinstalled.

I have no customers that are looking to buy a used laptop so what should I do with them?
Any ideas?

That is a tricky situation because the longer you have it the more the value will decrease. Hmm, how about donating them to a school or a charaity or something?

PM me the specs and a price on the HP and the Toshiba. I might have a buyer for one system.
