'HackIT found that the council was, in fact, sitting on hundreds of old laptops'.

'The laptops were all installed with Linux, a much lighter weight OS'.

I suspect many companies have a pile of unused, 'legacy' laptops that are perfectly serviceable.

"When she had first met David 12 years ago, she had been fascinated by his looks. The expression that mean feel entitled to wear when they stare out of a cold English drawing room onto their own land had grown stubborn over five centuries and perfected itself in David's face. It was never quite clear to Eleanor why the English thought it was so distinguished to have done nothing for a long time in the same place, but David left her in no doubt that they did."
