Default What to do with an old Nexus 2013 tablet?

Had the battery changed, a refurbished disk and no longer performs the same anymore.
Even after clean install - it won't update properly, battery dies out fast etc.

Was wondering if a Linux distro or something of the kind could do the trick to bring it back to life?

Can getting away from Google help or is the recycle bin the only solution?

Suggests other hardware related issues that are not cost effective to chase down and fix. Bin time.

That's what i kind of guessed.

It's too bad, 'cause it was a good tablet and they don't make 'em like that anymore.
Isn't that always the case today?
