Side notes on laptops:
2008-2010?: Dell Mini 9 running Linux . Purchased new, left in backpack which was lost-or-stolen at an Anthrocon.
2012-2017 or so: MacBook Pro of unknown specs, a hand-me-down from warphammer. Eventually got sluggish and battery-failed, now dead.
2017-present: MacBook Pro of also unknown specs, a hand-me-down from my Dad. Starting to get sluggish and the OS will no longer upgrade, but functional enough for the infrequent use it gets. Alice but sits untouched about 350 days a year.
