Please excuse a posting that's slightly off-topic until
the very end.
I'm looking to beg some used equipment--tape recorders
and a laptop--for use in South Asia beginning this fall.
Assuming that any paperwork to do this is manageable,
I'd definitely want to donate the equipment to a NGO
or educational institution before returning to the USA.
Recommendations from friends as to what I'd need are:
Tape recorders: One of Sony's or Marantz's professional
portable ones; I need a good workhorse for transcription
with a built-in mic. Also, a few cheap portable ones.
Computer: A friend wrote that she also couldn't afford
a new computer and exchanged a 5-year old Toshiba plus $500
for a (recommended) two-year-old Thinkpad (more powerful,
w/Windows 98). I could look into something like that.
Please correspond directly with me; I'll be happy to share
any information of general interest.
In addition, I hope to make and take along an American
language kit, consisting of basic (and fun) materials for
high school and university students. I just haven't gotten
this far in my planning yet.
