Should I give my old PC to a charity or school, or reuse it?

| My wife recently finished her MA (analysis 
| of audio data, thesis writing, etc) using 
| an eight-year old Toshiba Portege running 
| Crunchbang Linux. It starts faster than any 
| of her colleagues' modern laptops (about a 
| third of the time, with no virus check to 
| make the first 30 minutes virtually 
| useless), connects better to the wireless 
| network at the university â


Consider Linux for Secure Online Banking

| When I earlier called Linux a better

| application updates all the installed 
| software, something that Apple and 
| Microsoft don't do.



Renew your old PC

| Of all the alternative operating systems, one stands out when it comes to
| great performance on lower-spec hardware - Linux.
| Those of you shaking your heads and turning the page, hold on. There are
| plenty of other options if you can't stomach Linux, but I can tell you right
| now they won't perform anywhere near as well as a well- tuned Linux setup, so
| bear with me for a moment.


Giving life back to an OLD laptop

| This laptop belongs to a good friend and she loved it when I told her that we
| can give a new life to her laptop using GNU/Linux. This is an Toshiba
| Satellite Sro 435CDS built around 12 years ago. Specs? Pentium 120, 32 MB
| ram, 4 GB Hard. Yes this laptop has been upgrade a few years ago to highest
| supported specs.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
