How can I make an old computer faster?

Episode 1359 (2:07:11)

Al from Los Angeles, CA
Ubuntu

Al has an old HP laptop that he got from a friend. It's a little old for what he wants to do with it, so what computer can he replace it with? Leo says to download Ubuntu and install it on that old computer. It's Linux, which means it's free and secure. It's designed to run on older systems as well. It'll breathe new life into that old laptop.

If that doesn't fit his liking, Leo likes Dell. Al might also want to consider a Chromebook or Chromebox.
