Default LF: old Laptop

Hey folks,

Does anyone have an old laptop sitting around and collecting dust? Doesn't need to have very good specs or a modern version of Windows as I'm just looking for a machine that I can convert to Linux and fool around with while learning some programming.

If you have something that you want to get rid of let me know

Not a laptop but I have a desktop build I'll get rid of for cheap... let me get you the specs.
I think I also put Neverware onto it already.

I built a Rasberry Pi using a Pi 4B just a few weeks ago. If you have a monitor you could hook it up. Probably a good bet to get in super cheap if you are just looking to program.

I don't think I will be using mine anytime soon and could sell it. Did it more for a hobby one weekend.

I think I found an old MacBook that my brother had in his basement. I'm hoping to pick it up tonight or tomorrow

If you still need one, l have an old HP laptop that I got years ago when I signed a Telus Internet contract. The only thing wrong with it is that if you block the exhaust vent by putting the laptop on your leg or bed, it will overheat and shut down. If you don't block the exhaust vent it works fine.
