Ive got a Sony Vaio PCG-FR285M that i dont want anymore and am not sure what to do with. Was a pretty good piece of kit back in the day.
Half the RAM has gone kerput! so only has a total of 256mb working. Also the O key is slightly dodgy.
Should i just dispose of it or is there a thing people do with old computers?

Any advice is helpful. I kinda dont really feel like sending it to the scrap heap.

Specs:
Pentium 4 2.4 GHz
256mb Ram ( half give to memory at the mo) (one ram slot currently has a corrupt ram module in it but can be replaced)
15" monitor
CD-rw (had this replaced once by Sony - replacement doesnt work so well when computer over heats)
3.5" floppy perfect working order

Im going to remove the HD (40GB IDE) as ive found a use for it.

Anyone still interested in it?

eh why was my comment removed, I wasnt offering to buy it just saying what value I thought it was, and that I was possibly interested I wasnt saying I was making an offer as OP hasnt offered it for sale.

All offers removed. Confused re purpose of thread. Seems to indicate more than just a valuation thread.

To keep it simple, I've closed the thread here. You may relist in FS/FT after 7 days have elapsed.

Im going to post office tomorrow to see what postage would be.

I didnt think it belonged in the FS thread as i didnt think people would want to buy it lol
Thanks for interest though people. If the concencus is that people want it then i'll move it to the FS thread.
