Uhm, with a small kid around, don't you need something more solid? :P

Slightly older Thinkpads are heavily discounted, and easy to maintain. For example T580.

My new Vostro 5590 just arrived... from China... nCoV pre-installed? :D

(Maybe I should clean it with hand fertilizer spray. At least 5 times.)

The virus should not survive more than 24h outside the body, so you could just wait... you'll still have time to submit a replay tomorrow :P

My old Vostro is still capable to run Stunts (on better days), but I don't really want to use it.

If you're concerned that your computer might have a virus, you could just format the hard drive. No virus resists that, ha, ha XD
I do have a number of faithful computers to play my old DOS games, but they are all desktop PCs. I've had them for so long that I wonder how hard it may be to get one of them when I move abroad, as I don't plan on carrying my old desktop computers with me. Is legacy hardware still easy to find?
