    You could probably buy a used raspberry pi for $20.

    I wish I could help you out, if you have a liveCD or USB, I know you can get cheap desktops and laptops on Ebay, but you have to watch out and read the details careful. I seen a laptop under 10$ on their earlier, but no hard-drive and no battery or charger cable. (Shipping was cheap too.) so you might look into that, I was looking in the 512 MB range though, but you can get desktops a bit cheaper with about around a Gig of Ram, something like 30-40$ and if no hard drive even so cheaper. (shipping will run you about 30 though.) so you might look on there if you can not find one here.

    Also friends you may know with a "Broken" laptop, might really just need a new OS put on, so look intot hat too.

    Oh I see, so all you really need is a processor? I most certainly could look, do you know what the laptop you have is? like the Model at all? Like my Computer is a Compaq SR5250NX. If we know that, it would be easy to find you a Processor for cheap on Ebay. I am sure of it.

    It's very rare for a cpu to die, in most cases it's the motherboard.

    What region of the world are you? Depending on location, the cost of shipping may be more expensive than a cheap alternative!

    Do you know of a computer club in the area or anybody working for a corporation that may have a closet of old CPUs that has been swapped with something newer for an employee? That's where I usually get mine.

    I haven't bought a computer for myself since 2000, instead has been the lucky recipient of toss-away, corporations trying to unload machines and friends taking pity on me

    If you happen to live near me, I can help you, otherwise it might be easier to get help from someone else. If you don't want to publish your country/region, you can send it in an Ubuntu Forum private message to me and some other persons who offer help.
