Linux runs great on new computers and classic computers. A six to ten year old computer running Linux is a great for general use. I’ve been rescuing classic computers, upgrading them, and loading Linux. I’m offering these computers as way to help people get into Linux. I purchase these computers from third parties (eBay, Letgo…), test them, upgrade components and use them. Every computer has been in my hands and is here because it works.

3. ThinkPad T420

Used. Usual wear marks for a computer this age. All features are working. A pixel is out in the center of the screen (see photos). Less than usual wear on the trackpad it’s age.
I purchased this T420 on eBay and upgraded to an SSD and purchased a power cord. When my daughter’s newly purchased HP failed and needed to be shipped out for repair, this T420 stepped up for a month. I installed Windows 10 and she used until her computer was repaired, and she continued using it for while longer. This 2011 computer performed as well as the 2019 HP budget laptop. She loved the keyboard.
$145 plus shipping. I will install a fresh distro of your choice before shipping.
