I'm pretty interested in attending this, and I note the mention on the 
wiki of second hand PCs possibly being available.

Can anyone provide more information on this, as I'm looking for a 
cheapish computer for my parents, and could use the opportunity to 
install Ubuntu on it (I already run Ubuntu at home so don't feel 
terribly inclined to install it on my own machines ;)).

What sort of specs, what sort of price, and most importantly, what sort 
of backgrounds would these second hand PCs (should they exist) have? My 
parents are justifiably dubious about getting a second-hand machine in 
the event that it fails three months after purchase, so I'd like to know 
its pedigree, as it were.
