Cheap Memories of Goodwill

staffTo upgrade my daughter's ancient Dell to Ubuntu I wanted add to its 128 Meg memory with some SDRAM PC100 256Meg chips. I bought some at a local geek store for $40, but I've since learned our local Austin Goodwill Computer center at 1015 Norwood Park Blvd (637-7501) sells the same thing for $13.99 and it's for a good cause. Zac and Bridgette can help you find cheap gently used hard disks, memory, cables and other computer paraphernalia instead of sending these parts to the landfill.

Remember what Wally says, "reuse is better than recycling".
