What are some alternatives to throwing away an old PC?
nchristine 18 weeks ago
I was looking around a storeroom at home and realize that I have three old PCs just sitting in a corner. I can pay to have them disposed of, but what are some other things I could do with them? They range from an old Acer running Windows 95 to a Gateway running Vista (just typing “Gateway” brings up memories of horrible customer service). Any ideas for putting them to some kind of use instead of just junking them?
