What to do with all those old electronics?

I don’t like to be mean to Microsoft. After all I think they do make a lot of very nice products. It is a however a huge trend for them to be several steps behind everyone else and the products are just not as good. Take Microsoft’s Codename Max which is an attempt to answer to Google’s Picasa.

I want to see something new and exciting come out of Redmond besides the xbox. I know they have it in them. I’ve seen and heard of some very cool stuff in the research group. None of those products or ideas ever seem to make it in to the real world though.

Sell, prescription recycle or donate. First thing to do is take a look on ebay and see what that stuff is selling for. If there is any good dollar value to it, then I’ll sell it. If not then recycling might be in order. Ebay also has a program called Rethink that helps direct you in the process of getting rid of old electronic equipment and computers. Various manufactures have their own programs for the hardware they produce. just do a search on their website for recycling. When it comes to donating I’ve found that most of the local schools have shown interest. They usually want stuff that isn’t too old. I also have found that family members are usually in need as well.

However, I’ve been a little less enthusiastic supporting my old crappy hardware once I give it to them. So instead I’ve been trying to help them get better systems for their needs.

All that being said I’ve got about 5 old computers that I need to get rid of. I better get on it. Any takers?
