LOL, when you are garbage picking you don't ask how much....you wait down the street till the person goes in the house, then you pick them up.

I've gotten a couple decent freebies, but nothing off the side of the road. This guy was a computer guy and was moving somewhere, so he needed to get rid of a bunch of stuff. I had an ad on craigslist and he responded saying he had a bunch of stuff he didn't need. Half of the stuff was used, including several towers, compete and incomplete, random parts/cables and such. Then a bunch of never been used/opened stuff, not necessarily all new, but still good. I got that never been used stuff for $50 and the used stuff for free. It filled up my trunk and backseat full in a midsized car. That was the best lot I got. 1 system in the lot was an AMD Athlon XP 1.7GHz system I believe, with a 120GB HDD, no RAM, in a nice case. I wish I could get more nicer stuff. Now I can't get anything in my area on craigslist because all the computer people have really bad reps...

ps3's have the folding software on them by default, and I don't think a 360 can fold.

Nah, You cant fold on a 360 (AFAIK). You might be able to, if you have a chipped/hacked model, but IDK.
