Hi CommMajor101,

Check with you local schools and any local volunteer fire departments / rescue squads. Depending on age, many schools would love a laptop. VFDs and Rescue also use laptops to load various resources.

The computer doesn't work, but it is repairable for anyone who'd want to mess with it. Would the fire depts. take the computer that way? I never thought of the fire dept, that was a great suggestion!

Check out goodwill. Our local goodwill just got this new computer area just for computers. If its old like runs on 3.11 most likely they cant sell it anyways and it would not be worth fixing but I could be wrong. Donate it it could help someone.
