Why Linux? Most laptop or desktop computers come loaded with either Microsoft Windows or Apple macOS preinstalled as the operating system (OS). Both of these operating systems have contact tracing built in to the OS. This means that your computer is watching you everywhere you go. While I won’t get into all of the things that Microsoft, Google, and Apple OS’s are capable of from a surveillance perspective, the same rule applies to them all. It doesn’t matter how much security software you install on them. If the OS is manufactured by Microsoft, Google, or Apple, your OS is spying on you.
The bottom line, you ask? You MUST stop using all of their products as soon as possible. It is time to move to Linux.
What's it like using Linux? We install Linux Mint on our laptops - Cinnamon version. This is easiest Linux OS to get used to as it functions just like Windows.
Check out this video here of what the experience of using Linux Mint is like.
Our Linux Laptops We utilise refurbished Lenovo ThinkPad laptops as they are incredibly reliable and virtually indestructible. They will all have Solid State Hard Drives (SSD) as they are much faster & more reliable than old style disk drives.

This is our mid range spec Lenovo ThinkPad T450 Minimum 8GB Ram up to 16GB Ram
Keep in mind these specs are general specs - As we source our laptops from professional refurb companies, the additional factory options each laptop comes with will vary. For example, some will come with a fingerprint scanner and a backlit keyboard, some won't.
Condition We work hard to ensure we always source the highest quality Laptops that are Grade A/B condition from reputable refurbishing specialists. However, these laptops are for people who prioritise privacy over perfection as we cannot guarantee perfection.
Although we strive for excellent condition, they are not new laptops and some will have minor use marks and will not come with the original box
