I'm not sure what you mean by that reference to recycling. Do you mean
that replacing the machine will produce more waste, or do you mean that
the replacement is cheap because it is the result of recycling?

This is Debian: the family of the CPU doesn't really matter.
For a headless machine, a little MIPS-based home-router will definitely
consume less and should be just as reliable.
