    Computers surplus to requirements

    We are getting rid of about 50 machines, but we dont want to give them away, Is anyone interested in buying them, or does anyone know of a company that will buy them back. I have already tried buy-it-back.com but they arent interested.

    Here are the specs of the machines:

    1. Desktop Chassis – Depth: 17.5” x Height: 5.5” x Width: 17”
    2. Asus A7N266-VM Motherboards – Onboard Lan, Sound, VGA, Serial, PS2 Mouse & Keyboard
    3. AMD Athlon XP 2400+
    4. 512Mb DDR Ram
    5. 20gb ~ 40gb Hard Drives
    6. PS2 Mouse
    7. PS2 Keyboard
    8. D-link 530 PCI Network Card

    Thanks

    Re: Computers surplus to requirements

    Damn it... I missed this...

    Any chance you could do a little tweaking or pulling parts for a little extra cost...

    I've got one school that could really benefit from 5 of these units but it'd be useful to shift the RAM up to 1Gb (assuming all the ports weren't taken already)...

    Only question I have is whether or not those network cards are RIS compat'? (I'm guessing the 530's are as you've added them to the onboard LAN).

    Unfortunately not, They come as they are, otherwise we will have machines that are no good to anyone, and the dlinks dont have this PXE chips on them but we have a couple in boxes tho.
