eBay hooks me up with a new computer

One good quality of a company - they keep your computer up to date. The company I work for bought me a new computer today. Dell Dimension 8300 P4 2.6 HT 80G. This will replace my 1.5 Dell Dimension 8100 - XP Pro, which (with cygwin) continues to me my favorite development environment. We're giving my Dell and Julie's Dell (that I bought for $200 from eDeploy) to charity. I also have an old 300 MHz Compaq Presario that's slow as slugs - I'm going to throw it away and not place that burden on someone else (it serves as a patio umbrella stand right now).

Actually a 300mhz can have many worthy purposes in the rest of its life. I have a 266mzh machine with 64 mb ram and windows 2000 installed. It runs beautifully for surfing and email. Maybe even for simple office (school) work. If a linux geek gets his hands on it chances are it will start a new career as a firewall/web/file server. If you can find someone who will take it, I'd say it is too good to throw out. In Europe we send shipments of old hardware like that to schools in eastern europe who can't afford any equipment. Better old than nothing.

Matt, I think you take the cake for quickest PC turnover rate. You even manage to beat the 6 month chip release schedule! Are they going to sell it to you once the contract is up? or just take it back. Lasse is right, put it to good use a firewall/web/file server. I use a 350 PII Linux box for my CVS server, and it is still underutilized.
