New laptops for old - don't throw it away!

Post by admin »

Please don't add to landfill because your old computer has got slow or the operating system is now out of date.

If you computer can boot as far as the BIOS screen and is not more than ten (yes I said TEN) years old then it can probably be restored into a fast, responsive system for internet browsing, email, office work and much more - FOR FREE.

I'm interested - I have an old laptop (possibly around 2003?!) - if you could pm me some more details that'd be great.

Looks as though they are mainly proposing to load Linux operating systems
alongside the present (Windows?) os. There is no license fee for Linux so free
to install.
