Want a Used Computer?

I’ve just purchased a used computer from a friend to replace Robin, my secondary desktop computer I’ve been using for the last year or two. As a result, I’m giving away a computer totally free.

It’s a Dell Dimension 4100 desktop, Intel Pentium III 1ghz processor, 256mb RAM, and a couple of smaller hard drives by modern standards (I think it’s 20gb + 15gb). It has a 4-port USB 2 card installed, an Nvidia RIVA TNT2 video card, a CD burner, and a ZIP drive. It is in generally good working condition (no warranty though!) and I’ve used everything recently except the ZIP drive; I can’t vouch for the ZIP drive. I’ve pre-installed Ubuntu Linux, but it should take Windows XP too if you’re so-inclined.

I can throw in a keyboard if you need one, but I don’t have any mouses or monitors to spare (so you’ll have to provide your own). Let me know if you’re interested.

If I don’t get any takers within a week or two, I’ll be giving the machine away to one of the local charities I support.
