They get trashed, destroyed, stripped down for gold, then recycled.

Just go and route in the rubbish..in skips etc

you could ask your school (if you are in school) if they are throwing out any old computers, and if they would give them to you for a small price or freee. ive heard of people doign that before.

actually, that sounds like a good idea. my school is building a "technology center" to be used this fall, adn they're upgrading all their pc's. actually, they're macs. i dont know what kind tho. iMac i think. they're the colored ones with the pc built into the monitor. <-- haha, that describes all macs. anyway, they come in blue, orange, adn green.

last week when my friend slept over on a school day, and next day was garbage day, me and my friend went to look for shit, and we found a 66mhz pc with a 5 1/2 floppy drive with a lock. hilarious. we took the keyboard and snapped it.
