It's been a long time since my last post here, sorry for that. A few things lead to this, mainly my problems in dual booting Windows 8.1 with Peppermint 6 and also because I donated my trusty Lenovo S10e netbook to my mother.
So I was stuck without Linux...
Two months in, my Lenovo i3 laptop started to slow down - as Windows 8.1 is horrible. I started longing back to the days when I had a fast computer.
Yesterday I found someone trying to throw away a computer, it had an interesting case and I asked him if he would mind if I "salvaged" it. He said, "be my guest" Turns out it is a pretty sweet computer:
It has an antec case!
For a list of specs:
CPU: Dual core Pentium CPU E5300 2.6 GHZ
RAM: 2 GB
AMD RV730 PRO [Radeon HD 4650]
I still can't believe he was throwing this away.
Linux truly is amazing at repurposing hardware that would have been considered obsolete.
Long live Peppermint Linux!
