What should I do with my old computer?
It's old and any only has about 120 GB of space.
If its a single processor or lower. I would either donate it to a friend, a family member, or you might be able to get 30-50 dollars for it on craigslist or something. Dual processors still can keep up with today's tasks and still hold a little value.
You could always use it to test out a distribution of Linux like Xubuntu or other distros that are put together for computers with limited resources.

I've tried Ubuntu and that stuff, but it's too slow it ruins the experience. And the hard drive isn't that big so it's not even worth the effort to use it as a NAS(Network Attached Storage).I could probably host a website on it, any thoughts on that?
