Math teacher here, I've got a question for you guys:
Schools are pushing to integrate chromebooks/ipads into classrooms, but I feel these are completely wasted on math. What I want to do is teach students to actually use computers in a more mathematical and substantive way through teaching programming. I organize my math classes as being more of a workshop where students have multiple options to get points for the week by completing various activities of their choosing. One of the activities I want to introduce next semester is to allow interested students to use python to program stuff like algorithms for solving certain sorts of math problems, or use it organize and analyze data, etc...
What's the cheapest way to offer this to students who don't have a computer of their own and want to work on this stuff at home? I thought about scavenging craigslist for old laptops and stuff I could wipe and load mint or ubuntu onto, but I don't think administration/parents would feel comfortable with me offering the students old mystery-origin laptops. Another thought I had was to get pic related, but the students would still need a mouse, keyboard, and monitor. Any ideas?
I narrowed it down to the "All New" Fire HD 8 and a second hand iPad Mini 2 Retina.
In my third world country the Fire Hd 8 is 110credits while I found the iPad Mini Retina 2 for 120credits.
Which one would you buy /g/?

They are both refurbished and they are pretty much new since apple's refurbished quality is amazing.
But if you absolutely must get a Fagbook, then your choice is going to come down to whether you can get over the new keyboard.
I personally type like a caveman and smash down on keys with force, so I can't get on with the new ones: they make my hands hurt. Light typers may enjoy it, though.
What's your excuse for not helping this transvestite build the worlds best linux handheld computer?
What's the best (and cheapest/reasonably priced) chair for your computer?
Personally I've got the issue with chairs simply collapsing on me after year of use. I'm a massive 6'9 guy weighting 19 stones with something that is probably non-diagnosed ADHD which leads to me constantly wriggling and moving my legs in my chairs to the rhythm while I listen to music.

Why can't LinuxTechTips stop pandering to children with the gaymen RGB meme?
Do you believe the target audience of cuck tips is anything above gsymer children?
He even had a video where he makes a server hack RGB.
There is a shoddy video where you can see how shill for Intel and how flawed methodology he have on a delid video. He concludes that delliding Intel isn't worth, considering he is benching at stock with a stock cooler. You see the comments just idiots like "so the CPU is inside this metal? Who would figure"
I currently own a thinkpad x201 and I was thinking of selling it and buying a t60(with the best cpu and display I can find) and upgrading it to the best of its capacities in order to install libreboot on it via the software method.
Should I do this?

What's it like risking data corruption?
It's 2017 I'm not using that shit anymore besides for installing operating systems
Also windows automatically flushes the cache when copying over files before closing the copy dialogue because it knows about this issue
>Not using DVD'S for operating systems
Why does it take so long to install?
crypto JUST keeps on giving, i don't care that the gaymans don't have a cheap gpu to buy at the moment, go play angry birds on your iTurd or something, you can have your cheap gpus when the mining boom is over but right now fak off and let me collect these jeezy profits mmkay.
Does /g/ like AdNauseam? What do you think of it?
How many people on /g/ only use linux? Do more people dual boot than not?
