    Wondering where does everyone sell their used computing hardware these days?

    Due to surplus to requirements, need to dispose of the following :-
    1) 4GB RAM modules for an iMac.
    2) Apple Wireless keyboards (UK)

    The above are essentially brand new, bought a bunch of iMacs from Luxembourg and am upgrading the memory to 8GB modules. Getting rid of the keyboards as they don't have the Norsk characters.

    The following are used :-

    1) Lenovo ThinkPad T410 i5 2.2GHz, 2GB RAM, 250GB HD, 14" display, NVIDIA NLS, Win7. 2 years old.

    2) Lenovo IdeaPad U410 i3 1.6GHz, 2GB RAM, 200GB HD, 14 display, NVIDIA GeForce 500m, Win7 2 years old.

    3) Apple iPad 2 Wifi+Cellular 16GB. Bought in 2012

    4) Apple iPad 3 Wifi+Cellular 32GB. Bought in 2012

    5) Apple iPad 3 Wifi 64GB. Bought in 2013

    6) Dell Inspiron Mini Intel Atom 1.6GHz, 1GB RAM, 100GB HD, 10" display. 4 years old. Works but needs a new battery.

    7) Macbook Air 11" Core2Duo 1.4Ghz, 2GB RAM, 64GB HD, 11" display, NVidia GeForce. Bought in 2011. Everything works but some scratches.

    Where would be a good place for listing to sell them off and any idea how much I should expect for them?

    Also are there any charitable organizations that will take and then redistribute computing equipment? Preferably those that distributes it within UK only rather than re-export it to other countries or simply send it for recycling? There are quite a few in Norway but they only want hardware that is new or less than a year old.

    eBay.

    Just search for what you're selling and put it on for £5 cheaper than the going rate.

    Hei!,

    I'd be happy to take that mac off your hands for a good price, I'm not exactly the richest kid on the block.

    Is it still possible to sell anything there for a decent price these days if it is a 0 feedback account?

    It is a Norsk keyboard version though and the OS is in Norwegian, not sure if there is a way to change it to English.

    Never tried Gumtree but isn't it one of those places where you list and usually it attracts loads of tyre-kickers / time-wasters?

    Personally, I never sell my computing hardware, instead I just strip the computers and pack the hardware in boxes and keep them.

    Well, I have a lot of computers at home and I use them on a regular basis, if one of the computer fails, I can use one of the spare components as a replacement.

    Yeah, you do get that, but I've recently sold a 360, and Xbox One and a gaming PC on there without too much trouble.

    You can offload your equipment at a Car Boot Sale ? My latest Dell desktop which i am using now came from a CBS for £25.
