Re: [vox-tech] Cheap laptop

Old is not important. Cheap is. Obviously, with the cheapest new machines running around $250,
I would want to beat that by a good margin. Need to have a working  network interface, wired or Wi-Fi
supported by linux.

How old? Any particular feature set or price range. I've been quite
impressed with what you can get for $300 new from newegg, fry's etc.
That said Tiger Direct also sells off lease (rented to business) 3 year
old machines (Med to high end Thinkpads) starting around $200-300 too.
