Need a new computer for homeschooling? You can do worse than a sub-£30 2007 MacBook off eBay

Trouble with laptops is that unless you buy a toughbook, they are inherently fragile.

Second hand laptops tend to come with broken screen hinges, worn out mousepads. duff batteries and intermittent power inputs.

A second hand desktop PC is far better bet and they can often be picked up free or almost free. I've rescued them out of skips in the past.
