Someone in my gym wants to start as a web developer so I reset one of my old laptops to get him started.

Wonder if he'll know what the modem PCMCIA card is for :)
 
Is that a T60 or a T42? I'm still using a T60 running Ubuntu 12.04 as my second dev platform (desktop is 1st), and it's a great machine. So long as he doesn't do anything weird like put Windoze on it he should be fine.
 
OK, should be fine for what he wants. Maybe tell him if he needs something faster then you can pick up reconditioned Thinkpads very cheap, and they are usually great. I get mine from http://www.tier1online.com/ (no connection, just happy customer)
 
Lucky break for the guy... any reports of how it goes (positive or negative) would be very interesting
