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.

LCD Monitors
15″ or 17″ are good sizes.

Other Equipment
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 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!
