    Now that is 2022, you could install a Ubuntu 22.04 LTS flavour that will not need a major update until 2027. It'll be surprising if the laptop reaches that date in a good state (and if so, the update process will rarely fail, at least in my experience).

    I would vote for Kubuntu/Lubuntu, depending in the proficiency of the user.

    Just in case you haven't noticed (as it happened to me while playing Aragami), using the skins you can unlock through achievements requires a manual installation of a free DLC

    The T14s is the laptop I had in mind buying in my workplace for a while now, but a sudden change in providers has now left me having to choose an HP computer. I have discovered there is an HP Elitebook 845 G7 which shares a lot of specs with the T14s, but that is still not available. Maybe you want to also check those Elitebooks as they seem decent (for instance, both ram slots are interchangeable).

    I would choose Thinkpad before an HP computer because of personal preference (trackpoint, good linux support, etc) but specs-wise they seem fairly similar.

    Here you have some resources I had saved for learning new languages:

    • LanguageTransfer: free courses for several languages, including Spanish. The lessons are in youtube, and they can also be downloaded from a torrent.

    • Forvo: Listen to native speakers pronounce complicated words. Here you have some words to practise: berberecho, forraje, esternocleidomastoideo

    To add to the ones commented by others, I would recommend Fungi/Morels:

    https://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/122298/morels

    It consists on gathering different mushrooms and then cooking them in pans. I have not played it enough but I think it is a good game.

    Azul also works fine with two players.

    This is the list I used some time ago to buy some two-player games (Jaipur, morels, patchwork, hannabi, 7 wonder duels, and some other I cannot remember right now):
