I picked up an old ThinkPad 600X for $20 - now what to do with it? In this video I talk about fixing up and giving new life to old computer hardware - and yes, games are a big part of that (even on a ThinkPad!). I also install Linux to see if a modern OS can run on a Pentium III-450. To answer a few of the questions I've received in the comments (and hopefully head off repeating them): 1. No, it can't run Crysis 2. No, it can't run GTA5 on the highest settings Before making these "jokes", please remember that about 5 million other people have beaten you to it. It's probably not worth bothering. 3. No, it's not the laptop your school uses in 2017. Your school uses modern Lenovo ThinkPads, or just a similar looking black laptop.
