You probably have a broken computer somewhere in your house and you're about to throw it away. Wait! Don't just throw it out, that thing is filled with precious gold! Just kidding, it's only about $1 worth.
After watching the video it will become pretty apparent that the average person doesn't have the equipment to harvest the precious metals from old computers, but even if you could, it wouldn't be worth the effort. Apparently old computers, that tend to have the most gold, only have about $1-$9 worth of gold spread throughout. The real money comes from recycling computers at extreme volumes.
According to specialtymetals.com, A cell phone has about $2 worth of precious metals in it. If you could get your hand on 1000 old cell phones you may be able to make $2000.
That also doesn't seem very realistic but recycling your computer certainly is. If you're in the US you can recycle your computer at both Best Buy and Apple stores; and the cycle continues.
