Just looking at a gov't grant to buy a pile of <wiped> used notebooks.

may be able to get several 2nd hand ones.

at least - there won't be any previous O/Ss that I would have to get rid of.

these would be used to show other people, how to use a 'nix O/S
without them getting concerned / afraid the their M$ will get altered / damaged / wiped out.

went to a local auction the other week, - never have had a chance to do this before,
& wanted to get some notebooks - maybe 6 - 10 or so of these, but I was quite surprised
at just how high the price for 2nd hand notebooks were.

almost 40% of a brand new one, with only slightly higher spec's ??.
- new one would have more memory or a larger hdd - but only just.
