Train WiFi was actually that bad for a while
The first iteration of WiFi on trains in the UK was actually that bad , it had no encryption and you could just use wireshark everyones connections.

I'm all for providing people with second chances and helping them become constructive through technology but i could never be involved in the 'prevent' strategy. Its been widely criticised as inherently racist , instead of helping people with problems its just using community resources for spying and criminalising people with dubious racial profiling.
If you want to learn about technology go and get involved in open source projects , join meetup groups get involved with your community , do not tell the police they don't get it and they will just mess you about.
this specs seem to fall short of anything really useful for professional use , especially the weird screen resolution. If it had NVMe , thunderbolt and quadro graphics then we are talking.
looks like its aimed at the same market of people who use macbook pros for facebook and sometimes loading expensive applications then gettings scared and going back to facebook.
if you are still using a 32bit system you could replace it with a new faster 64bit that will use less power.
i have a hunch that the 64bit system will be so much more power efficent that you will recoup the cost of the new machine in electricity savings over a year or so. no i have no maths to back this up.
If the wifi you are using is encrypted with wpa2 and has wireless isolation enabled (and working , lots say they can do it but they can't) then this is not possible without breaking into the router. Sadly a surprising amount of places decide not to have a WiFi key for ease of connection. This is the case with the free WiFi on trains and is seems to be related to a bad implementation of its useless registration system
