Having inherited an old Acer 5410 laptop, Muriel’s needs were pretty basic, but she is still a regular user of Amazon and keeps up with the news via several websites. For some reason the wifi did not want to work when she acquired the machine, but a quick spin with Linux Mint live USB proved that this was an issue with MS Windows not the hardware. We duly installed Mint and hay-presto a fully working machine that did everything required. The latest Mint 18.2 looks fantastic and runs as smoothly as anything on this machine.
