I once had a single core POWER laptop (Powerbook G-something) as a hand me down. It sucked, and Debian Jessie dropped support for the architecture part way through my ownership of the device. No loss though as I'm not much of a laptop guy.

Debian (sid) is still available for big-endian systems.

Thanks but I've since discarded the device. It really was barely powerful enough to use for anything beyond novelty.

Haven't picked up anything new, but I have been testing things as I move them into storage, and my beloved "SR-7100" (Power Mac 7100/66AV with a 400MHz Sonnet G3, max RAM and HPV card) still works just great. That was a nice find.
