Hardware, Embedded Systems In previous OSNews articles I've claimed that discarded computers up to ten years old can be refurbished and made useful to someone. They shouldn't be discarded. They should be refurbished -- fixed up and reused -- rather than recycled -- destroyed and separated into their constituent materials. So how does one do this? In this and several subsequent articles, I'll describe how to revitalize older computers.

Old computers are less energy efficient. Probably it's economically wiser in the long term to buy _current_ not very powerful hardware than to resort to old stuff that consumes a lot of power for its mediocre performance...
