    What do you guys do with really old and slow hardware like this? Is still have some old motherboards with cpu and mem laying around. Should I just throw it in the trash or donate it somewhere? But I don't think even second hand stores will want ancient hardware.

      undervolt and underclock it, use it in a NAS with an efficient PSU, list it on eBay and maybe some retro-tech-tuber buys it for a project or something. donate to local community college for their hardware fundamentals class. save it for spare parts.

        >use it in NAS
        Have you tried it, clown? Network overhead will kill it alone. Scrubbing? Forget it. Oner of your drives on its last leg and you want to replace it? Hope you have three weeks/Tb for resilvering!

      I have two P45 boards, a Q6700, and an E8400, along with a bunch of DDR2 to fit them in my "in case of sudden hardware death, use this" box

      Due to autism old laptops sell for a lot these days. A few years ago a C2D laptop would be worth $20 or so, now you can easily sell them for $100+.
      That being said, a C2D is definitely usable for general use, the only thing you can't do is gaming. It's definitely on it's last legs though, doubt a CD is usable anymore, but C2D works for now, and the C2Q in OP's pic should work for 5 more years at the minimum.

        Lots of the ancient cpu's don't have the proper instructions for new cryptography and video. And can only deal with slow as frick memory. Even a n100 is gigantic upgrade.

          core2 duo CPUs are almost always using DDR2, be they laptop or desktop

          DDR3 was available only for short time for the machines when Core2 tech was already being phased out in both laptop and desktop forms

    Newer CPUs can do more with the same amount or less power, unless you count AMD FX.

    - High power consumption that your mom has to pay for
    - No AVX, AVX2 and other modern CPU instructions that improve the performance
    - No hardware acceleration for popular video codecs (not even h264)
    - Not even 3.0 GHz clock speed
    Here, I listed a few.
