Bunki, do you have a Goodwill in your area? We have one here in Austin,
TX that has all kinds of used computer equipment at unbelievable prices.
Most of it is for PCs, but some Mac stuff as well. A CD burner is worth
every penny. Maybe your PTA or Booster club could purchase one. I burn
all of my files each year so I have a back up of the stuff I created and
digital photos of examples of projects.
