I saw a question recently on an internal Microsoft alias, asking where old computers go when they are retired.  It turns out that Microsoft’s old computers (and those of other companies) end up at http://www.retrobox.com.  It looks like they have some great deals if you don’t need the latest and greatest technology.

Sadly, I personally am psychologically unable to buy anything less than the latest stuff, so I cannot take advantage of this company’s offerings.
