I'm interested in learning more about hardware. I'm thinking about taking a little online class through my local community college as well as some edx classes with the goal of (maybe) eventually taking the Comptia A+ exams.
I also want a second backup computer that would not be used for intensive programs or gaming. It will run some version of linux. Probably Ubuntu or something Debian-based that is a bit lean.
Anyway, would the tower in this Craigslist posting be good for these purposes?
I want something I can upgrade, for the purposes of learning about installing hardware and to bump up the ram a smidge. However, I haven't learned enough yet to know what to look for when looking at old stuff for sale.
Please let me know if this is a good tower for my needs, or if you have any thoughts on what questions I should be asking the seller.
I would also love to hear any musings, stories of experience, etc., on the types of equipment I should be considering for my new little hobby.
My apologies if this is posted in the wrong joint.
