Explain your plan[edit]

Tell us about how you contribute currently, and how you would contribute if WMF were to gift a used laptop to you.
Happy new year,
I have been contributing regularly to Wikipedia for the past one year. Although not very impressive, I can claim that I have fairly decent quality edits. Contributing from mobile to Wikipedia, however, causes problems in many cases, and sometimes those problems create many complications. I do not have any laptop or desktop. In this case I need a laptop to contribute to Wikipedia properly. But now with the slightest financial problems, it is not possible for me. So I am requesting a low-cost laptop to the Wikimedia community (enough to be a good old-fashioned laptop donation if it works properly). The facilities I may get if I have a laptop which are not available (or not easy) with smartphone are:

  1. Browse through the references in order to check verifiability and add them in appropriate place.
  2. Editing long pages without freezing the screen (i.e CPU freezing problem)
  3. Patrolling recent changes and make appropriate edits without complexity.
  4. Using Visual Editor easily
  5. Using Content Translation easily without erroneous typo.....etc
