Don’t get too excited. This is really old stuff. One is an IBM Aptiva SFF, previously running Win 98. The other is a big tower with Pentium 4 CPU, 3 ghz, my old XP machine. The thing is, both computers still work fine. They are just old. Like me. Like me, I would rather not see them discarded for that reason alone.


Can anyone offer a loving home to these fine examples of early technology? Ideally I would like to see them actually used for something, maybe for teaching basic computing to old people or programming to kids. They must still be usable for something.


Both are complete but I also have bits and pieces to go with them for anyone who is interested – extra PSUs, graphics cards for DVI and VGA, maybe a 4:3 LCD monitor, many, many dial-up modem cards for some reason, also other legacy stuff.


If anyone actually wants them I will wipe the drives. I also have several of those, by the way, IDE up to about 300 GB. This stuff must be picked up. It is not worth trying to ship. No charge to anyone with a good use for it, though voluntary donations to charities of your choosing are always welcome.


PM me for further details.
