its probably all crap. I got a whole stack of p3's in front of me right now. They cant play games of today. About all you could do with them is surf the web or a giant MP3 player.
Or get a few bucks on Ebay.

you could set one or two of them up in your car to have mobile wireless access, or a giant mp3 player or a home made navigation system....or you could sell them...or smash them...or throw them from great hights

you can use them as servers or firewalls if you know some cisco stuff. they make great storage devices and multi-tasking computers. or give to friends.

You could always donate them to a local charity if you aren't going to use them.
