I'm not paying apple's absurd pricing and pay for everything integration either, so here be linux, on "refurbished" laptops I buy for $200 on ebay and use until I break them.
this Hp is currently on like 5 years. Still surfing pirate on it. I mean really. What do you need a home PC to do these days?

Used Ubunto in the past, tried the new one on this laptop but it sucked big time. Tried Mint and happy with it. (Tried another in between that sounded good but was buggy as shit - do na remember the name.)
I loaded Libre with this and eschewed the marketing-gimmick alternative that is now bundled with Mint.
In addition to surfing, I need to be able to work with Word, Excel and PowerPoint docs. Libre office is 'ok' as it is not completely compatible, with Office but usually good enough.
