Today I found some discarded computers from our school and of course I had to have them. My friend also took some since he doesn’t want to spent a lot of money to computers like I do. For me it’s more about principles than actually having any use for those. I hope someone (maybe a student from our school) needs those, I also might have (to create) some stupid project for next summer that needs one or two of those.
What I got
Specs of the (5) Hewlett-Packard computers
- Intel Pentium 4
- 4 pieces of 256MB DDR RAM
- 300w power supply with SATA connectors
- motherboard with integrated graphics
- no hard-drives 😦
… I probably have some use for those power supplies but for other parts it might be hard to find any real use.
I also took one 2U IBM rack server
- 2 Intel Xeon processors
- 4 pieces of 512MB RAM (Propably DDR, I don’t remember for sure)
- lots of 60mm fans
- Motherboard with integrated graphics
- 2 power supplies
- Again no hard-drives 😦
Once again I took something that I probably will never actually need. Also my apartment looks again like a data center / computer shop / repair center.
