  • 2 Core CPU

Laptop with smashed screen, damaged keyboard or missing battery are OK to send in, as long as it still works by plugging in external monitor, external keyboard and external power supply.

Ubuntu does NOT need the attached screen, keyboard, battery to run Disposable Nodes, in most cases the laptop lid (thus the screen) will be closed during operation to conserve power and space.

2. Second Hand Market

Old computers on the second hand market tend to double in price if there is double the amount of RAM.
