We went to the annual book and yard sale at our town library and one thing we bought was a Toshiba notebook computer . . . for $5!
How could you lose for $5? If it doesn't work, you have still donated five bucks to the library. It's win/win.
First problem, the keyboard and the touch pad do not work. Give up? Not me and my dear spouse!
She plugged in an external mouse and a keyboard and they worked.
Second problem: Password protected by previous user! Give up? No way! There's always a way around things.
Third problem: The computer is running Ubuntu, which is apparently software for the Linux platform. We have no experience with that. Give up? No way! Why do you think Google Search was invented?
My wife found a few suggested workarounds and one of them worked. Eureka! We went in the back door and re-set the password!
Now we have a spare computer ... and it cost only five bucks and a little determination!
Bonus: My spouse likes computer games and this computer has a bunch of them!
So, you are RIGHT, Evan! Obstacles DON'T have to stop you.
