I just have to tell you guys this...

Last thursday I bought a computer for 20 dollar, it's an old IBM desktop with a Pentium II 450, 256 Ram.

I went to buy a hard drive for an older computer I had lying around and wanted to make a server out of it. So I got there and he tells me the hard drive would be around 20-30 dollars and he had none in stock. So I asked how much for that computer on the floor and he said 20 bucks. So I bought the computer that had a hard drive in it plus it's twice the speed of my older computer I wanted to use.

Gotta love those surplus stores... Thinking of going to pick up another couple this week... Geese even ebay can't compete at that price.

It is funny.


I went to a place called Cyber Salvage, and was looking for a Pentium 4, they had about 7-9 of them, It was awesome, I bet they could have built atleast 10-30 well going computers from all their used junk they get.

it's like a thift store for used computer parts, I LOVED IT.
