    What laptop was it so the rest of us can avoid this tomfoolery in the future?

      Acer 5742. It’s old (and more importantly, free), but with a first gen i5 and 6GB RAM I thought it would still be able to run basic Ubuntu.

      On the plus side, you could access the drive and RAM through a detachable panel, without needing to pull the whole machine to pieces, or be prevented from upgrading it entirely. Which is another thing that’s becoming depressingly rare.

        Acer seems like a bit of a grabbag when it comes to quality.
