Step 2: Work the School
After a little sweet talk I got him to say they had an old PC, but we'd had to work out a deal that he couldnt give it away for free.
After replying I stated that, I had an old Pc and that i really wanted to mess around with an old Mac, and I thanked him for his time, and left it at that. He then emailed my back and say he had an old Emac he'd give away to me for free because he took the ram out.
That was fine by me I have some extra RAM lying around so I took it. So I just picked it up and I had a free computer, it wasnt new but it was free.
