So I had a 2011 MacBook Pro I've used Mac OS with for several years. This specific model has a known problem with its internal GPU where it malfunctions. Long story short, it doesn't turn on anymore when it starts to load Mac OS.

I was wondering if it would be possible to install Linux on it, maybe even disable the malfunctioning GPU through the installation somehow. Should I give it a go or is it a broken piece of trash?

Got 350 bucks to get a laptop for college. I have a MacBook Pro mid2009 2.26ghz 13" somewhere, was planning to upgrade it to 8gb RAM and install a SSD.

Has /g/ a better idea?

Maybe a thinkpad or something

help /g/ im a total pleb. ive had a late 2010 macbook pro 13 inch for a long time now and a while back i did a full install of windows on it removing the recovery partitions and everything. complete full install of windows. now ive realized, ive long lost my recovery disc when i moved. Ive tried creating bootable usb stick and cd using transmac, both do not recognize on boot. Ive read that the only way to restore in this situation is to use the recovery disc that came with the macbook because of the proprietary hardware? im not really down for contacting and paying apple for a new one if there is any way around it.
