The University of Colorado Computer Science Department is always
happy to take your old unwanted Solbourne equipment (and anything
else you might want to get rid of within reason!). So, before you sell it,
consider donating it to us and writing it off from your taxes.
We can provide you with the appropriate
documentation necessary for claiming a deduction, however, be aware that
we cannot, by law, assign a value to your equipment.
Near as i know, if you're a corporation/business entity and have been
filing depreciation on the equipment, it's worth to you what's "left on
Otherwise, you must obtain a qualified independent appraisor for this if
you will be claiming more than a certain amount ( ($5,000/year) / category
to all donees).
Go the IRS web site for more info
