New Computer

I got a new laptop computer today. Wow, I now have a really nice setup, nicer than I probably need for my tasks. I am wondering, however, about the growing dead computer junkyard we are developing in our garage. If we have one, imagine the sum total of dead computers that exist as people and businesses replace them. If only there was a way to reuse them so they don't fill up our landfills -- maybe schools, non-profits, someone could use them. I will be researching that; we had a place in California where they took the components, made new systems, trained people on them and got them out in the job market. That was such a great re-use of the dead computer parts.
