To the person who left a reputation comment of "This is a scam if ever I saw one" I have now given 22 of these away to families that have no other way to puchase a computer. the rest were sold at £35 to help cover recycling costs of the many many older machines that I had to dispose of. I've got another 200 coming soon a bit more modern I hope.
Seems real enough to me.
The local school systems and some bigger business here often run an add in the paper selling or usually just giving away similar computers when they get major technology system upgrades. It make sense to me that other places in the world would do it as well.
It keeps them out or the landfill and does allow the lower income and more resourceful people to get basic systems on the cheap for what ever purposes they can still use them for.
We have a similar place here in town that you can bring your old electronics to for recycling. They refurb computers and either sell cheap or donate to charities. The other stuff gets separated and sent for further recycling.
Yea, they still charge $80-90 USD for Windows around here. So it is a deal with the XP sticker on the side. rmn_tech. That is a good thing you are doing. I give our old machine to a friend that cleans them up and does the same thing.
