I was gifted a computer with a failing hard drive from my boss. It's got a decent size touch screen and a core 2 duo processor. It's about 6-7 years old, but it's running linux like a champ. This is what I needed to get back into computer stuff I think, a nice, useable computer I can play around with.
Now, I just need to slap a SSD in here and DL the latest distro.
