My experience with refurbishing old Dells (towers, desktops, laptops) with
L/Ubuntu has been very positive so far. I tend to be given old Dells that
businesses have finished with to refurnish to give to people with mental
health problems, their carers, their families.

I also have a refurbished lenovo ThinkPad T420 as my computer and it has
been pretty good so far.

Before putting Linux on, though, I wipe the hard drive with dban and test
the memory with memtest86+. Saves a lot of frustration.
