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

Nah, I bought a Dell on Gumtree for £50. I booted it up to test it and it seemed fine. Burned out later that day, the seller must've been using freezer spray.

I used to sell Pi's on Gumtree, customised for whatever, and I'd replace it if it failed. Second hand laptop market seems full of chancers and criminals.
