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

GPU hell

The Apple laptops with dual GPUs aren't recognized by many Linux distros. It took me days to find one that would boot with a visible primary screen and then another day to find a driver to correctly set the active GPU.

If you're going low-end, a used cellphone with a desktop mode isn't too bad. It's definitely less technical to set up.
