If I had to recommend any upgrade it'd be an SSD. You can get a 120GB one for like $35.

As a gentoo user, you are wrong, though Unity could use some debotnetting.
>>
Not bad at all for $4.
>>
unity a shit but there is literally nothing wrong with Ubuntu on a general use desk/laptop
>>
If it is 4 US dollars, that means the price in Canadian is about the cost of a new Thinkpad t640p.

I snagged this from the recycler for $5, not even the best I've gotten over the years.

Going to swap in a matched 4x1 GB ECC kit and get my grandma off of NetBurst forever.

What kind of vidya does it have? I'd put an El' Cheapo card in it, something with HDMI, and have a media system/server. A EVGA GeForce GT 610 can be had for less than $40.
>>
>>52246406
It doesn't count as free if mommy bought it for you
>>
>>52240650
Yea man! You did great. Good job, I would've done the same. Also how much was the shipping?
>>
A good buy if you have a use for it. Not so much if it collects dust in the corner.
Should do fine as a daily driver. Looks good!

>>52240713
Pentium Ds are the P4 based housefires, "Pentium Dual Core"s are the gimped Core 2 Duos that are actually pretty efficient.

for 4 bucks it does not even matter what kind of hardware it is. and it even runs unity, you did good anon. i'm jelly

Don't listen to the freetards. Use whatever OS you want to. They speak a lot about freedumbs but ultimately fall short on realising they're impeding your own to install Ubuntu.

Just make sure you're informed about the kind of shit an OS does as far as data. I really wish more companies would take the "permissions" approach of giving you a bullet-point list of any telemetry a system does.

Very nice.
