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

Zoom Machine...

...mine is a Thinkpad L440 which cost a bit more than £30 (more like £100) but has i5 and 8Gb. Runs Mint linux and allows the installation of the Zoom application and the Microsoft Teams linux 'beta' application.

I use this machine with its flatteringly vague webcam for teaching and the obligatory online meetings (the ones I can't get out of). I just use the mechanical hard drive it came with. No problems, everything works but lid-close suspend appears not to be available on this cheaper Thinkpad model (didn't work in Windows either, googling yields nowt).
