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


Well, it ain't no MacBook...

...But my 32-bit HP Pavilion laptop with an AMD A6-6310 runs all manner of distros rather well, if I don't want to do more than browser the web and watch movies. And as long as I don't run a bloated desktop environment but Mate or XFCE4 with lightdm is very usable. I'm a little worried about it's future because if Firefox and Chrome get too much bigger I might have to switch to minimal DE like Enlightenment.
