    You started out by saying "Is it worth it" than you said its free. And you wanted a serious response to that ? o_O

    Why? If you give something, it's implied that you think it will be put to some use and that you no longer need it. If I wanted to sell something rather than give it away, that's what I'd do. If I give it away I don't care if the person trades it in, sells it or drives it into the ground. The people I give stuff to generally use them rather than trade them in, but I specifically said to a kid one time, "this is getting old for the newer games but you could trade it in and get a leg up on the cost of a new one."

    ^^ Upset with me or just upset you had to pay for a used piece of gear that the kid down the road got for nothing? Luck comes around and goes around... For all I know I have lit an insatiable desire for computing gear in a kid without the money to upgrade in future... so he may eventually be upset with me too, later on!

    Send it to Donald Trump. Doing so makes as much sense as this thread.

    No, you're being ripped off.

    You can't really be asking this question, can you? I just hope that you're sure it's not stolen. But then again, people don't usually give away stolen goods for free, as that defeats the purpose of stealing them.

    Don't do it. Sounds like a ripoff to me. Your buddy has other intentions

    Anything you get for free is worth what you paid for it.

    Again... somebody posts something with no detail, and in this case, appears to be a random thought/fart. Then the OP disappears and we all try to answer.

    Amazing.
