Since you are a member here at SUN, why dont you find someone here that is in the process of starting up a venture, and has little capital to work with and donate a laptop to him/her? I`m sure it would be appreciated. Just because we are here dosent mean we all have the resources for something that is a must in running a business. Just a thought on "paying it foward".
Best of luck in all you do!

Wanna make an independent movie or TV show? You could network all your laptops together for exponential processing power, perhaps for rendering. You could also use all those screens as part of a science fiction set or multimedia presentation.
In any case, with or without the laptops, what you really have to contribute to all manner of startups, what is of greater interest and value, are your time, effort and abilities.
Let`s keep brainstorming.
Perhaps we can even work together.
