    Anyone got a laptop they don't need? The adventure playground at Loughborough Junction https://www.grove-playground.org.uk wants one for kids to use. If you have a Windows one which needs repair/refurb I can do that. I'll pay for the parts if they're cheap. And I'll clean the disk with a program that properly, permanently erases all the data. If you have an Apple machine I can't help, so better to deal direct with Olly the playground manager.

    If you have a Windows machine and you want to check that I'm not just trying to get myself a free laptop :bigeyes:, please PM me and I'll arrange for Olly to talk to you.

    eta: a broken screen might not be an obstacle. With some models a used screen is cheap and not that hard to fit.

    Have you tried Freecycle or similar?

    No. Freecycle is such hard work. I'd almost rather buy the kids a laptop out of my own pocket.

    Thank you very much. If it's got no future I can at least help you recycle it. Nearest electrical goods recycling point to me is Currys on Effra Road. I'm having a clearout and have a mountain of stuff for them. Don't Bin It, Bring It | Recycle Now
