Hi, fellows!

 I just added my machine to the Linux Lite Hardware Database (a few minutes ago, local time, UTC +2):

For the laptop (actually, a netbook) ASUS X200MA there is an entry back in 2022 I guess.
I found it searching for "Intel Celeron N2830".
It is the machine I used to make the videos posted here, running some 6.x series on this machine.
It's still working acceptable. I'm eager to test LL 6.8 on the same machine. When done, I hope I will release a new video to showcase the use of Linux Lite on older machines (This one is from 2015, so, nine years ago...)
I'm posting this since I saw many people here interested in reviving old machines and I guess this kind of configuration is a good overall image on what Linux Lite is capable of doing "on a shoestring budget".
You can also find lots of other machines using this CPU in the Hardware Database.
The only change I made to the standard configuration is storage. I replaced the HDD WD 500 GB with a SSD Kingston A400 480 GB (Same SSD model as on Dell T1700).

One thing more:
I reminded that in some posts, people supposed that there are losses of storage.
The real meaning of "480 GB", is actually 480 x 10E9 Bytes.
Now, if you divide three times with 1024 to get the real value, you get 447,03 GB which is the exact value reported by inxi.
Nothing lost. Just marketing strategy...

Best regards,Șerban!
