This would have been of interest to me if I were starting college these days since as a student I had very limited cash reserves. Nice to see the word getting out there.

The only downside I can see to videos like this is that when folks catch on to using linux on old kit the price will rise. :breakfast:

Possibly true. However this T61 in the video is pretty old so I can't see it being that expensive ever.
The last 3 laptops I've fixed up for Linux, 2 were giveaways. The third one is a Thinkpad T430 which is in lovely shape and I got at a substantial discount from new.
There are still a lot of people out there who don't see the value of Linux on old machines
