Tools for Schools is a charity initiative to recycle older generation PCs over to needy schools so that they can be put to work helping our children learn those vital IT skillz. The computers are collected free of charge from donor companies, checked, refurbished and resold to schools at bargain prices.
A Pentium II, with 32MB of RAM, CD and monitor for �95.00 for instance (the recipients are ‘asked’ to buy a minimum of 5 machines).
It’s a neat idea. [via The Register]
