    Reason I say dump instead of recycle to Africa is that by sending them there, you're sending them something that's already faulty. That's not charity, that's Chinese style electrical waste dumping.
    Got some GX 270 and 280's ( some of which are still being used ) and they are awfully slow on windows xp sp 3, trying to get it from sp 2 to sp 3 took a good hour to download sp 3 and then another hour or two to install and get it updated to sp 3.

    as the GX240 we had were licensed and we had the original recovery disks. I sold them to parents for £20 a pop.
    All original parts monitor kbd and mouse. Not bad considering they're 7 years old.
