What do you do with your old relics, unused laptops, disused towers, under done servers
what is it you do with them after your use case for them has stopped?

I donate it to friends or throw it into the trash. It's not like I have the expertise or time to make use of old tech, and for organization-sake I do periodic cleaning, so I tend to donate/throw away stuff before it piles up somewhere in my house.

I either sell them or donate them. As for laptops, I try to keep them around in the hope I can repair them, but I kill every windows laptop I touch. Mostly I try to refurbish what I can though, I like to switch around devices from time to time.

turn em into hosting servers, or media centers for family. my website started from just steam link, and then eventually i just took it out of my room, gave it a ton of storage, and then host all my anime there.

Usually I use them until they stop working so I think trash? Don't actually remember throwing things away

My old smartphones are still in my there tho, I hope I can recover the files

I just store my old chonky laptop to my tech corner. When I see it again, I honor it after it's service to me.

So far... most old tech i stopped using broke. Old laptop died of iGPU failure (2nd gen i5). Old phone has a broken screen, but like that broke that it hurts my fingers if I use it...

Where did you get a picture of my drawer from?? :D
I often intend to sell things on, or throw them out, but most of the time I just think "maybe that will be useful some day" and into a drawer or cupboard it goes. Still, if ever some huge bank with an ancient server powering everything suffers a RAM failure, hanging on to that old DDR2 stick might just have been worth it!
