What things can I do with a second laptop?

I currently have a spare laptop, I was thinking of using it as a second monitor but the result was disappointing. So I would like your help please, I would not like to let the laptop get dusty again.

use its hard drive to make a backup of ur whole os using timeshift

and if u have 2 ram slots, remove one and put it in ur main laptop

then just simply sell it

Or put Zorin Education on it and donate to local computer club for youngsters.

You can use for experimenting and learning about Linux and computers in general:

  • Install other Linux distributions every now and then, see how you like them.
  • Self-host things like Nextcloud to have your personal "cloud".
    • Checkout other self-hosting options like Jellyfin, Bitwarden, etc.
  • Dedicated gaming computer.

If you are a gamer run games designed for Windows on it ..... I have one that is running Win 7 pro on it and playing all my old games that I copied to external HD's ..... I just copy one game at a time to the LT and when I'm I done playing delete it from the drive and load another one ....

Media Server could be a good use for it. I have a desktop than runs 24/7 for this purpose.
