What can I do with an old laptop I have no need for?

I got this old windows 7 laptop just sitting around attracting dust as I no longer use because it's just not powerful enough to play any modern video games. What can I do with it other then throwing it in the trash?

    24/7 servers

    for example, you may want to run a minecraft server on your desktop, but you want a true 24/7 or to conserve your resources

    i use my WinXP e-machine, and i want to add a 4th server to it, but it's already chugging hard from the first three

    i would replace the winxp with a win7 laptop anytime

    Just keep it.  Dust it off, store it in a pillow case in a dresser drawer.. some day you’ll find use for it,,

    I use mine as a internet radio with Itunes. 

    Donate it to a local charity. (not Goodwill or the Salvation Army)

    Your local charity will see it gets a good home the Goodwill and SA will throw it into the recycle bin somewhere miles away from your local area.

    There are a lot of college students looking for a good laptop to do work on besides gaming.  what i would do: check about upgrading to Windows 10, wipe the drive completely (to protect yourself) Install Win 10, and then advertise it for sale locally for $50-$99.  Money in your pocket is always better than putting something in the landfill.  

    Note to Ben: Win10 does have MS Paint.
