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

Down not across Silver badge

Latitude E7240, i5, 8G RAM ,256G mSATA SSD, 1920x1080 (sadly glossy touchscreen as it was only one with decent resolution), smartcard reader/NFC , wifi, 3G. Running Devuan nicely.

Still see new, unused keyboards, wrist rest/touchpad and other various spares on fleabay.

Looking at the current ultrabooks, the final stumbling block is always WWAN. Maybe I'm odd in wanting it just built in rather than rely on tethering, but choices are very limited (and I could buy stack of these second hand ones for what one new would cost).
