I think they are using a lot less gold in computers nowadays. I went thru three old computers, stretching back to the MacIIcx I used in my print publishing days, back in the fucking 1990s. As you come forward, the gold on the teeth gets smaller or disappears. I'll watch your video, I have watched one other. It cost a fair amount to get the chemicals to get the gold separated. I'm not really crazy about attempting that myself, given the lack of room I have and experience w serious chemicals. I've seen other scrappers say they can sell motherboards and I guess memory cards online, so I may try that as I have a few.
