Free computers, you pick them up is all

We have about 20 desktop PC's, no idea what the specs are, HD, cd's, floppy drives etc.

8 rack mount servers, Pentium 3, 1Ghz dual proc's (they are pretty thin, 1 U in size)

14 monitors, vary from 15 to 21 inches, 1 flat panel 19 inch also

Various mice, keyboards and cables, old phones, some laptops too.

No idea if it all works, but most of it was replaced with newer equipment, so it was working at the time it was powered off.


If you are interested, send me a PM. It is all free to whomever wants it.

They've done studies you know.... 60% of the time, it works every time

LOL, I am trying to keep up with the PM's!

I am in Arlington, 30/360 area

OK, I just found out the flat panel does NOT work


We also have about 50 office chairs that can go, free!

We are downsizing the office, about 1/3 the size it used to be and getting rid of our training center, so there is a ton of shit to get rid of. It is cheaper to have it given away, then pay to dispose of it, so come get it!

OK, we also have a half hieght rack that the 1 U servers came out of. It has some massive cooling fans in it, free to good home!

Some of this shit would be good for EBay, people always have old stuff in use and need spare parts!

I guess these may be newer than that then, we fired one up and it was a 1.2 Ghz. Hell, I have not ever seen most of these running since I started here, they have been in the same cube since before then, we just kept adding stuff to it!

Thansk for everyone who has come out so far, appreciate the help getting this stuff out.

No laptops are left, there are a bunch of desktop systems left, cables galore (cat 5, power cords, power strips, extension cords), some keyboards and a few mice. Some Netgear hubs, panasonic phones (work at home, not office type phones).

There is one 1U and 1 2U server, and a few desktops left, along with a bunch of monitors still. Tomorrow it all gets hauled off tho, demo starts Saturday morning I heard. They are tearing all the walls, carpet and ceiling out, total makeover. If someone wants anything, come by early, like before 10:30, too late after that.
