I have two computers I'd like to find homes for. Both are contemporary enough to handle a modern operating system. One has (legal) Windows 7 but no monitor. The other has a monitor but no OS. In either case, someone would have to spend around $100 to get it fully operational. I might have a wireless network card or two, but I haven't tested them. Also, for the computer with no OS I can load Ubuntu and make sure it's functional before I pack it up which would make it effectively free..
Ideally, these would go to homes where they're really needed. I know a lot of people know someone who doesn't have a computer, or is limping along with a dinosaur. That would be my first preference. Second preference, I'm a sucker for kids being able to have their own homework machine, so everyone doesn't have to share one PC but the family can't budget for that. These are workhorses, not gaming computers, so they could run Steam and Minecraft, but not the modern FPSes
Please PM me here on G+ or at email@example.com if you know someone (including yourself). The last thing I want is for someone to embarrass themselves, so if you comment publicly I'll delete the message and contact you privately.
Also, there are no strings - you (or they) don't have to have me circled, or any of that stuff. In fact, I'd rather keep this as much on the low-down as possible. I'm doing this because I have a pile of reparable kit, and I'd like to see as much of it as I can go to new homes, not as some sort of self-aggrandizing gesture.
Actually, there's one string. I can only ship within the continental US. After that shipping costs get stupid expensive, and I don't want to run afoul of any export laws (which are all long and complicated)
Also, I'm serious. This is my personal project for the year. I've already found homes for three computers, and I'm hoping to average one a month as my budget allows.
-edit: I'm also willing to entertain offers of your old kit so long as it's functional (or reparable) to try and find a home for too. Dells and Lenovos I have the most experience with, and know where to find parts.
