WTB Old Junker PCs/Laptops

Postby FalenDragmire » Tue Sep 19, 2017 12:50 am

I am looking for some old junker PCs or laptops (10 years old or older) to restore for both personal use and just as a hobby to pass the time. I really don't have any specific brands or models in mind. In the case of PCs, I'm only looking for the towers. I'm willing to negotiate prices on any and all offers.

I'm also looking for an old junker CRT monitor, as long as it still works and is in decent working order.

Shipping costs for old PCs and especially CRT monitors will cost you a lot of money. I hit the thrift stores frequently in my area and I can usually find something decent for $10 to $20. I'd recommend you try it before paying $20 to $50 just for shipping an item.

Junker is the title for what is essentially a bounty hunter who seeks out rogue synthetics. The most famous junker is Gillian Seed.

Oh, you want the real answer? A borderline useless computer or vehicle for screwing around with. A laptop from 2003 would be a junker to most. Too old to be used for much, but not old enough to be used for classic computing. I have a few junker systems, but they all weigh a metric ton. Well, closer to 30lbs. Steel cases.

Yes i would definitely look at thrift shops. i found 3 at different times at a local Deseret industries. my first find was a Dell Inspiron 531 not the slimline model. with an 160 gig HDD, 2 gigs of ram, and a AMD Sempron Le 2.3 gigahertz processor. My second find was a Dell Optiplex 745 with 512mb of ram with a Intel Pentium D at 3.4 gigahertz. Both i got for 15 dollars, and have successfully upgraded to windows 7. My 3rd and final find was a Dell Dimensions e510 with a 200 gig HDD 2 and 1/2 gigs of ram, and a Intel Pentium D running at 2.66 gigahertz. So yes in my opinion thrift shops are the best, and if you get lucky like me and find one upgradable to 8 gigs like the dell Optiplex, you could get windows 10 running on it provided your video card is supported, and if not you could get one that does. Some people say old technology is old news, but in my opinion the older an item is the better it usually is. This is not always the case, but back in the day they built higher quality electronics. Thanks, have a nice day/night whatever it is for you, and good luck on your quest for older PCs

Thanks for all the replies, everyone. I'm still looking at a bunch of options, but I appreciate the advice everyone has given. Gotta take stock of my funds and resources and decide what path is best.
