well - I am in the middle of another DAW upgrade, because of that I “stepped” over tons of old computer parts, hardware and stuff…
In older days I usually found some use for old and outgrown computers - office system, computers for sisters, girlfriends and what the heck… But in fact I don’t need a Tyan Dual Opteron Office System as well as I stopped providing people with computers because I don’t have the time to give 24/7 support - in the same time I had much less trouble since my sister switched to a cute Macbook ^^
Does it make any sence trying to sell for example an Adaptec U2W SCSI card which was about 500-1000 bucks 10-12 years ago - or that 9 GB (!!) SCSI IBM Drive which was about that price as well… Today I buy a 1TB HD which is blazing fast and quiet in the same time for 45 bucks…
Does it make sence trying to sell a highly specialized computer system “at once” - who will need that configuration? Or better put anything seperately back in original boxes and trying to sell that instead?
Well, basically I don’t have the time to sell dozens of parts for just peanuts. In this case it would be more effective to just dump it somewhere… Just getting rid, making room for other stuff… But it feels not good to do that, so much money and time spend with and for those things years ago.
So… what do YOU guys do with old computers, computer parts?
