The recording industry has bottomed out in Nashville and business is slow.

Cash is tight and I think my MacBook is about to take a dive.

If anyone has a old PC laying around from a recent upgrade or whatever, I sure could use a deal

Laptop
Workstation
DeskTop ... whatever.

As long as I can run two monitors, I'm golden.

I'm far from a power user, so anything fairly modern would be fine.

Think of a brother, will ya

Trade well !!

Try craigslist for your area. But be smart, if you aren't a tech guy bring a friend who is to check it out before you buy anything.

FYI - whatever pc youdo get - if it has a SATA-II or III connection and you can afford it, consider putting a SSD in it. Low capacity ones (64GB) are dropping in price, and as a trading PC, you might not need a ton of storage capacity and be ok with it.

However, the SSD will make an older pc run MUCH faster - like a higher grade pc than you actually bought because it eliminates a major bottleneck. Just be aware that some SSD's will require a flash to whatever latest firmware they have to make them stable (it can wipe out an existing OS, so has to be done before installing the OS) - and to upgrade the firmware requires a functional pc with a matching connector type (SATA II or III - whatever the SSD has), since you attach the SSD as a secondary drive to flash it (some don't require this, but some do). You might get a friend to do it for you if you don't have an available pc to do it.
