Over the past three weeks, Alberta Computers for Schools (CFS) has seen a marked increase in applications to the program with requests for free refurbished computer and laptop equipment. The technology is needed to support a variety of low-income families, non-profit organizations and schools as they re-tool for people to work and learn from home. By reinvesting your surplus IT equipment through our program your organization can play a major role in increasing the number of computers we provide to Alberta schools, libraries, and other learning-based organizations. Please send us your good surplus computers (i series, CPU's), laser printers and multi-media components. Please do not strip the equipment of vital operating components. Our refurbishing centres will use approved disk-wipe software to ensure all information is removed from hard drives. Our procedures are quick and simple, and all contributions will be acknowledged. Desirable Items Desktops - Intel i series & AMD FX 4000+ complete systems with RAM, HDD, etc. Laptops - Intel i series & AMD A4+ complete with WiFi Adapter, A/C adapter, RAM, HDD, etc. Hard Drive - Minimum 160Gb Sata 1/2/3 Displays - 20" widescreen LCD/LED displays manufactured 2012 or later Printers - HP & Lexmark laser networked printers Misc - USB keyboards and optical mice Networking - Gigabit switches and routers For more information on how you can help, go to: https://www.cfsalberta.ca/donate.php
