We are looking for any equipment that can be used in school computer labs. Specific hardware needs are listed below. Cash donations are, of course, very helpful as well.
Laptops / Netbooks
These are the donations we love the most. Because shipping costs are high, laptops are a great option to use in school labs. We also like donations from small- or medium-sized businesses that are retiring a collection (10+) of similar laptops. Minimum requirements:
- Must be working (i.e. no dead screens)
- 512 MB RAM
- 20GB disk
- Working A/C adapter
We are not taking individual desktop systems at this time, due to the high cost of shipping. If you have a collection of similar systems, please contact us to see if we can find a home for them.
15″ or 17″ are good sizes.
We also need:
- Ethernet cables
- Laptop memory
- Network hubs, switches, and routers
- Wireless Access Points
- Extension cables and power strips
For information on where to send your donations, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a description, your location, and availability. In some cases we can provide info about major carriers that may offer discounted shipping rates. Upon delivery, Kids on Computers will provide you with a receipt for your donation. Thanks in advance for your help!
