    im getting rid of this old hp desktop computer i have. its got a cd burner and intel celeron d processor and a big huge old hunky monitor. no keyboard.

    tried listing it on ebay and undercharged for shipping. so i didnt ship it. itll cost like 150$ to ship it.

    i was just gonna go throw the monitor in the dumpster but read its bad for the environment.

    i found a site to donate but i think its too old too donate.

    what the hell can i do with it?

    trash it ?

    it still works and has windows xp on it but i dont have a disk to do a system restore on it.

    You can give it to a computer waste company or a junkyard. Junkyards always take my monitors! heeheehee.

    Give it to a charity, Catholic, Mormon, whatever. Some needy kid will get it for 50 bucks or less.

    Put it on craigslist.
    Maybe some student would like to throw Linux on it to mess around with.

    I did when I took a Linux class because I didn't want to mess with putting it on my pc.

    At worst put it in the free section as a free on the curb alert.

    for example
    " I put my old pc on the curb at xxxx, I will delete ad when it's gone"

    oh yeah almost forgot.
    zero out the harddrive, reformat it at-least. Who knows what personal information is on there.

    I just go to the local recycling center, we just dumped 20 or so computers there last week.
