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

Probably something with a Core2Duo or equivalent CPU, that can handle at least 3 or 4 Gb RAM and an SSD, so what would have been a high-end machine around 2007 or 2008. Laptops of that era often have decent (non-chiclet) keyboards, too. I have a couple of Pentium M (i.e. single-core) machines from 2006 that (IMO) are just about acceptable (running Linux) but whose limitations would probably not be tolerated by most users today.
