We need to first know waht type of computer they have before you can make this recommendation. All in ones don't necessarily have outputs, for example, for video for monitors...

comment How to transfer files from a broken computer Linux Ubuntu
We don't diagnose hardware issues here. Is your system an all-in-one? Is it a desktop tower with a separate monitor? Is it a laptop? We need a lot more information to try and help you

comment BayTrail CPU and Ubuntu 15.10
Describing the workaround and how to implement it would make this a much better answer - as it stands, this is a half answer and incomplete; it doesn't provide all the relevant information either.

comment When is the 16.04 LTS .iso file available?
@ChrisZweiDreiMo No it is not final - there's still a few things that need poked and finalized with approval first for a release. Those images are not the final ones.

You have a config syntax error as indicated in the journalctl output which means your configs are not correct or valid. Check systemctl -l status apache2.service to get more details.

comment Can you run a VPN connection over HTTP?
Can you? Possibly with OpenVPN. Should you? Absolutely not - port 80 is a target for HTTP traffic on the universe and you may get some nasty evils that may break OpenVPN. You really should not run VPNs on HTTP ports.

comment Bash (Win10) doesn't locate any package
I don't think this is even supposed to work - Bash on Windows 10 is NOWHERE near stable enough, and has a lot of issues reaching out to the Web. it's also sandboxed, so I would NOT believe that apt-get would work just yet.

comment Problem with IPv6 sudo apt-get update/upgrade
Do you have a package manager open, or another update process (such as automated updates) running in the background? Something is currently using the apt lists, so it's eitiher dpkg or another apt/apt-get, or a package manager (Ubuntu Software Center, for example) or automatic updates

comment Problem with IPv6 sudo apt-get update/upgrade
Have you taken a look at this post on Unix and Linux? It seems to me that it can 'force' IPv4 and not IPv6, though I haven't tested.

What guide did you follow? Note that games in Wine can be highly unpredictable and sometimes just don't work properly

comment How to fix Linux recognizing nvidia audio drivers and not motherboard audio jacks?
Mint is offtopic here. It is not Ubuntu and even though it could apply it doesn't because it is NOT Ubuntu.

comment Linux & Wine problems
Internet Explorer on Wine doesn't really work all that well and Microsoft Expression Studio isn't the best there either - it would be better to run a Windows VM for those
