CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Officials have put surplus computers to good use while saving the state money.

The Department of Education and Office of Technology said Friday that under the Second Launch WV program, more than 3,000 state government computers taken out of circulation have been fixed up, cleared of old data and sent to schools, daycare centers and other places.

Officials say had these surplus items been purchased as new, the estimated cost would be $965,000.

Other places that have benefited from the program include the Marshall University Forensic Science Graduate Program, the state departments of Environmental Protection and Natural Resources, public defenders, and the Kanawha County health department.
