That's about the way one of the two local Goodwills is here in Battle
Creek, Michigan. Actually, I haven't found much of any computer stuff
at that particular Goodwill in the last few months.... I wonder if they
are turning it away or pitching it. I gave them a pair of monitors
awhile back, and never saw them on the sales floor. I suppose they
could have sold quickly, if they put a decent price on them.
