    I'm trying to get a collection of old computers and I was wondering where's the best place to find them.

    How old? Are we talking within a few years old, or like Tandy computers, old Apple computers, etc...?

    Yeah your best bet would be Craigslist, or thrift stores. Last place I can think of would be the tech department of a school, but chances are they use the old systems to get credit for the new systems.

    Yeahhhh...Craigslist has your back on that. Everyone else might give you a rig pretty cheap, but kill you on shipping.

    Well, there is a difference in "old but valuable" and "piece of garbage". People probably aren't gonna give you a 80s Apple Computer for 15$ hen they can sell it to a collector for 1500$.

    But yeah craigslist and Goodwill might have your back on that.
