I am desperate need of a laptop at the moment. I'm a single mother of 3 my husband died in a car accident a few months back. I am now their soul providers. I just found a job that will allow me to work at home as well as take care of my children at the same time. I need a laptop to be able to do so does anyone know of any charitable organizations that donate to someone in my situation? thank you
I volunteered for a company that recycled PC's to sell cheap to schools and the poor.
Community Computer Alliance is a nonprofit organization that provides workforce development training for individuals with Autism. Laptops are $90. I'm sure a place like that will give you a break.
Another source for cheap computers are companies that recycle corporate or educational accounts. They get hundred of older PC's at a time and wipe the hard drives, then reinstall Windows. The key with those places is to get a computer that they haven't worked on yet.
You will have to do some work yourself but you can get a PC for $50 or less. Once they touch it the price goes up. My local MicroCenter sells used Laptops starting at $150.
