Giving an old laptop a new home?

Postby baward » Sat Jul 04, 2020 11:38 am

I wonder if anyone in the UK has an idea where I can donate my old Powerbook to? I absolutely don’t want any money for it, but it would be a great shame to have to lob it in the ‘knackered electronics’ bin at the recycling centre. Thanks!

I'm not familiar with any of these folks myself but here is a fairly comprehensive list of possible organisations you might consider contacting:

I never allow anyone to throw away old-ish (there's a limit, of course) computers. I clean them up and donate them to local charities. They are always in need of kit like that.
