Actually, going through my "get rid of it box" I've got:

- 2x 512MB laptop memory (make: nanya, not sure on specifics)
- 1x 512MB desktop memory (not sure if it works or not)
- Book: Learn Perl in 21 days (old, not sure if it's worth much)

And not quite PC related, but:

- Blackberry case with magnetic latch, for a pearl or similarly shaped model
