Does my old pc have gold in its cpu's and hd's maybe other parts. Ive tore apart serveral pcs and hd's and one hd is not magnetic nad look like gold plated! Is there any gold in a old pc or new alike? The pcs parts range from 1989-1995. CPU's are intel 486 sx,IBM 120mhz....intel I200. Just curious if I have a couple of dollars worth of gold in my hands.......

Some computer components are actually gold plated. The reason behind it is to resist corrosion. If you was to get all of the gold off, from a complete computer, it would probably amount to less then $.02 worth. Interesting thought, but I dont think that it is worth it.
We are all curious like a cat. We wonder, we ask, we learn.
Please post back when a suggestion works, so that others may learn.
