Horns of a dilemma

My laptop is dying... no more will I hear the gentle whirrings as his soul stirs and he presents me with my hard worked on data.. the Doctor (technician) has stated his hard drive (soul) is mortally ill and is soon to shuffle off this mortal coil.

Decision time draws nearer, whether to invest in a new laptop or to try and find replacement parts to keep the old one going for that little longer as I find it hard to let them go to the graveyards of old computers (I still have my first DOS laptop, which was going to be thrown away by my Uni) it is never used anymore but still I have a need to cling on to it for no other reason than I cannot bring myself to dispose of it.

Isn't technology terrible?

I have never had a laptop (though I covet an iBook - I miss my Mac). But they do seem to fail on an alarmingly regular basis.

Son #2 gave me his old laptop. However, he must have gotten his power cord mixed up with someone else's, because the one he included doesn't charge the laptop. I've only used it a couple of times.

I too cannot dispose of things...seems such a waste! My PC has been giving me grief for quite some time, but I just give it a quick pat g'nite and a sweet hello in the morning..and voila! It comes back to me...ever so tempermental :)
