Check this little guy out!

It says it can bring new life to a old computer and even make it faster then new one at times, would love to see a review on it

 

Edit: I feel like some people may not know I believe it is a waste money (and everything else)  I just thought it was funny

Its anouther linux distro on a usb stick. Probably not supported well and very expensive for what it is.

 

Don't know why you would buy it, just put lubuntu on your pc and call it a day.

The advertisement material is clearly aimed towards the less computer savvy. What they are selling can with very little difficulty be done by most people on this forum. But to their target audience, it could take all week and still end up a mess.

what they are selling is something barely anybody at my school knows how to use... only a few people know what the bios is, and even less know how to get there....

Oof $35 for Linux

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

It's linux on a usb stick and performance is dependent on the speed of your usb port. I doubt ancient computers will have usb 3.0, and that flash drive can reach a sustained read/write of at least 100Mb/s.

I can Surf the web, Share on social media, Write Emails AND watch videos?? Shut up and take my money!

† 

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
    That mark our place; and in the sky
    The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
 
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
        In Flanders fields.
 
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
        In Flanders fields.

 

 

Cry havoc and let slip the Togs of war.  (Signature V3)

Wait what do you mean? I thought downloading RAM was a viable option when your PC is slowing down a bit, no?

You know that you can make similar thing in home for free?

Just simply download linux .iso file, using rufus write it onto usb stick, and boot from it on your computer.

One of the Linux distributions (of course free) peppermint is addapted to work on old slow computers.

Check it out here https://peppermintos.com/

Otherwise you can download other Linux distributions, they nearly always have lower minimum requiraments than windows.

For example my favourite one:

https://ubuntu-mate.org/

Because the kinds of people this is marketed towards are the same people that would have no idea what any of what you said means. It's for computer illiterate people.

Judge the product by its own merits, not by the Company that created it.
