I'm unsure where or how I should list free hardware for people - I work in
the arts (am an artist) and I have access to heaps of free computers that
were quite high powered just a couple of years ago, as well as quite a few
Apples of various ages.
If the hardware runs Linux or can be used to run Linux then this list is
At the moment I've had people ask me for a couple of Linux gaming systems.
While dual-core systems (which I have in my spares pile) are mostly OK for
that I'd rather get quad-core systems if possible to keep them going for
longer. If you have some spare quad-core systems then I'd be happy to take
them and find a good home for them. I have plenty of RAM and hard drives so
happy to take systems without RAM or storage.
I would also like to have a Mac for fooling around with.
I know that there is a hardware library of some sort
(is that still
current?) but I was wondering if there was a place where people list
hardware for others to take/use?
The "hardware library" fits into a brief case that I take to meetings. Anyone
who has stuff to donate that fits into the case can just deposit it. I also
accept donations of PCs by arrangement as I am not always able to transport
PCs (I sometimes take public transport).
I can't attend the November main meeting but could arrange to get stuff later
It seems I'm increasingly inundated with free
hardware lately, but honestly
I'm fine with the machines I have and don't want to take on any more
computers (I only have 2 hands!).
Parts that are of particular interest include DDR3 RAM (for laptops and
desktops), SSDs, SATA disks 500G and bigger, FullHD monitors, and USB devices.
