    I know that Apple's had a computer recycling program for several years now, but according to Apple's recycling page, they're now giving out Apple Gift Cards for computers that still have monetary value.

    Is this new? Or did I just totally miss the boat on this one?
    My computer is apparently worth a $350 gift card!

    That looks like an excellent idea, its not available on the UK store yet but I hope they do make it available.

    Darn, my 17" Powerbook G4 is only worth $141. Sadly, my 6 month old Mini is only worth $233.

    Of course, that $233 would knock a nice chunk off the price of a new Mini... :)

    Frankly, I think it's a great idea. It really encourages people to recycle their computers — and they get some free money in the process. Definitely something I might consider when those new iMacs come out!
