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

Been There, Done That...

Did all of the stuff that the article says to my wife's 2007 vintage white Unibody MacBook.

2Gig of RAM, 120GB Samsung SSD, cleaned the heat exchanger (dead cat, I think), new thermal paste, installed Linux Mint with a MacOS skin on it. ET VOILA! Runs like a charm.

The only thing it won't do is connect to my router with WPA/AES encryption. But falling back to TKIP works.
