Good question.

 

Think I've still got all of mine (4) stored away. Not sure how to remove the hard drives. Want to take them to the recycle place

Not much so far...looked at a local charity that donates them to kids but they have a minimum spec (and I don't really know how to check the spec of my ones)

I still use my 2009 Toshiba Satellite as my daily computer. I put Linux on it 8 years ago and it still runs fast and without any problems.

There are all sorts of linux distros that you can put on them and they will run like new.

Ubuntu is great I got my Mum and Dad trained on it before they got a Macbook Pro
