2. Does it say how old they are?

For all we know they come with Windows XP preinstalled...

Reputable places like Amazon or Newegg.com always have a few refurbished laptops for less than $100.

A Refurbished DELL Chromebook with an Intel Celeron N2840 (2.16 GHz) 4 GB Memory 16 GB eMMC 11.6" can be had for $89.

Sometimes you'll see Windows 10 machines for less than $100. Using a Windows 10 machine with 4 GB Memory and 16 or 32 GB of eMMC can be a frustrating experience.

For someone who wants to learn Linux on a new machine a $100 Raspberry Pi 400 might be a good place to start.


There's also a "desktop" version of the Raspberry Pi OS that will run well on older Windows 7 and 10 machines.

Linux Mint is also a good option for these machines.
