i don't think "connect to router and set up a media center" is a good fit for my life/workload at this time lol

what are some good projects to use old laptops for? i'm feeling really silly about still having these old machines lying around. roughly the ages/makes are: a 15yo thinkpad, a 10yo thinkpad, and a 7yo macbook pro.
