 big computer companies usually upgrade to newer systems anually and they give the old computers away (normally) Libraries have them

  I work with a large food bank in Phoenix.  They seem to have a constant pile of computers going through as donations.
 Also, check with your local school.  There are many programs that get used business computers out to students.

Maybe a stupid question, but; how did you post this question without a computer?

In the UK, libraries have computers that can be used for free by members of the library (and membership is free).

I second Freecycle.  Larger companies will also routinely dispose of older computers as they are replaced; the place I work for gives away computers on a monthly basis for example.  If freecycle is of no help, maybe you could try calling around to some larger businesses around town.
You could check and see if FreeGeek has a location near you. Or you might get lucky with Freecycle.

Look on craigs list for a free one or put an ad in asking for a free one.  Lots of people have an old one that they're not using but don't want to throw away.
