Geuine Intel Pentium 133MHz
??????? Motherboard
Motherboard Video
Motherboard Sound
64megs PC133 RAM
32x cd-rw drive
non-functional floppy drive
windows 98 (barely runs)

ive decided either to give it to some1 who basically only needs notepad, or take a hammer to it. but i dont know how much its worth. could it be qualified as an antiqu yet so i can get loads of cash by selling it to a pc museum?

Cut off the pins flush to the ceramic with a Dremel, sand a bit to remove any dangerous burrs, and make a keychain...

I second the donate option. Give it to the church, local school whatever. I think you get like a 100 dollar tax mark off or something.

I'd post the CDRW and PC133 RAM for shipping costs. Wasn't until just recently that I could have put either one to use in a kids rig.

Find out if they'd even be interested. Some organizations have minimum specs for what they'll take in donations, since sometimes the recycling costs can be higher than the benefit they'd get from it.

If nobody wants it, make a keychain out of the proc, put the memory and CDRW in the Appraisal Table for shipping only, and wait for your city to have a computer recycling event. I know Best Buy sometimes runs them around the country....

Scary...exactly like my 3rd oldest system, including the ???????? Motherboard and nonfunctional floppy drive. I use it for testing programs that could potentially destroy something.

My advice to you:

Take PC
Place in driveway
Line PC up with car wheels
Turn car on
Put in 1st or Drive
Advance over PC
Put in Reverse
Back over PC
Repeat the last 4 steps over until you feel fufilled.
