💻 2018 Lenovo IdeaPad 330-17 (Linux Mint Cinnamon) Laptop

This is an used laptop computer in very good condition. It has an 8-thread CPU, 8 GB of RAM, and a 256 GB SSD, which is perfectly good for a non-gaming laptop. This laptop has a large 17" screen which makes it great for watching streams around the house.

NOTE! The battery on this used laptop is untested and probably won't hold a charge for very long.

Linux OS

Linux is an open-source operating system, offering increased privacy and security. Linux computers receive security updates for decades and are easier to maintain, repair, and upgrade. This makes them immune from planned obsolescence. Linux computers are virtually immune to viruses too.

Why would you switch to linux? You might be concerned about how windows tracks you. Or maybe you're tired of buying a new mac every few years when your battery stops working? Maybe you don't want to see ads in your filemanager. Or you just don't like that it's possible for anyone to inject ads and trackers on a computer you paid for.

Linux comes in various distributions. These might be more or less user-friendly or customizable. They can come with different desktop environments which determine the appearance of the interface.

Cinnamon DE

Cinnamon is a windows-like desktop environment with an applications menu, window buttons, and a panel. It sort of resembles Windows Vista, but the similarities end there. Cinnamon is very fast and customizable, and intuitive for anyone coming from a windows environment.

Linux Mint

Linux Mint is a linux distribution that is intuitive and great for beginners. Linux Mint is extremely reliable and just works. It comes with an easy-to-use "app store" called the software center that will install thousands of free apps in a single click. The programs in Mint's software center tend to be older and more stable, leading to fewer error messages. On the other hand, programs installed this way might not have the latest features.
