    "Supplements" like old time RAMs and SSD/HDD spec of that period is very costly today as most of it dies with gears of that period...

    It's not easy to enter and understand the world of kids/grown ups in Autism for outsiders, so as it's harder for parents to get their autistic juniors to blend with the fast moving world.

    Your problem is not new, as i know a colleague who's autistic son still lives comfortably in his XP world. It's not easy for the parents to get him a XP laptop for him to bring along and get around in different environment. Nowadays as most of the refurbished or old sets were either loaded with Win7/8/10, it's even harder to get her son the model which he's familiar with...
    However, some autistic kids/grown ups can be influenced by their parents if the parents do their part by leading them off that "status quo" position patiently, slowly, and tactically.

    Because of this Covid-Lockdown period, my colleague have more time to spend with her junior, and had successfully bring her son out from XP, steps slowly into the Win8 world(still a little buggy with legacy hardwares...). However, the gear that her son initially grown up with, a Fujitsu laptop with that twistable monitor, cannot be found anymore, even in our 2nd hand market...

    Yes, he has an acer s3 running windows 10. But he loves using all kinds of different cameras etc. Our Acer 7720 has everything he needs to create movies on. I have the Mac up for sale for whatever I can get for it now. It's really just a paperweight at this point.

    I believe the X230T has a rotatable display? Maybe ask them to try one of those out, they're pretty cheap
