  • Fix or Build New?

    My laptop died. I think its an issue with my HD. Should I save $ and fix the laptop or build a new gaming rig?

    BTW - I like to mention that I only play quake1 and I get about 250 FPS on the current laptop.

      Laptop HD's are < $100, why don't you just fix it if you know that's the problem

        Ei, I work on/in laptops all day.

        If it is a Dell (especially), I might be able to hook you up.

        Feel free to PM with the make/model of your laptop. Is your HDD IDE or Sata?

            The HDD is the cheapest part and it's also by far the easiest to replace. Order a new one now and you'll be playing Quake again tomorrow.

                It sounds like you really want a gaming PC. If you were to fix your laptop, you could sell it.

                Use your Tax Return to get that super-duper PC.
