SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) -- Illinois is donating 400 repaired, surplus computers to veterans groups for job training programs.

The state Department of Central Management Services and the Department of Veterans' Affairs announced the plans Tuesday.

The computers are desktops and laptops from federal agencies made available through Illinois' federal surplus program. They're refurbished and have had hard-drive cleanups and minor repairs, so they should be ready for use. Each computer has Windows software installed.

Illinois officials estimate the computers are worth approximately $150,000.

Earlier this year, the state's Central Management Services department donated millions of dollars' worth of surplus boots, coats, mittens and other winter gear to charitable groups.
