Is there any point in storing old computer hardware?
I've got a bunch of junk taking up space that I've got just in case, but so far it's been useless to me.

hell no. tech hoarding is a horrible waste of space and any old PC will be outclassed by a dirt cheap, energy efficient raspberry pi or something.

Unless it's a bunch of working pre-2010 thinkpads that will become infinitely valuable in the cyberpunk dystopia, then it's most probably shit that you can safely throw away.

Check these lists:
https://libreboot.org/docs/hardware/
https://www.coreboot.org/Supported_Chipsets_and_Devices
https://coreboot.org/status/board-status.html
If it is listed as compatible, keep it. If not, either toss it or reuse those components that you can. No need paying an arm and a leg to rice out a new gayming rig, anyway.

To be fair, I'd want the latest known non-botnet machine, like a T400, rather than some museum piece.

protip: this is the only
thinkpad from that generation that can support a quadcore that you can easily install, which you will need if you want to run modern apps.

Yes. Do you have any old network devices, anything that plugs into network via wifi or network cable, anything from phones to printers to heating mangment systems, ANYTHING?

>>6154
To clarify any of these devices can be used to find exploits to then hack any other similar device on the internet. Anything that connects to a network that is not your PC or Console.
