I’m giving up seeing Jay next month for new technology.
I had them look at my old laptop only to find out that it has a fried logic board, which is a $200-300 repair. It also needs a new battery. So I guess I’ll put it up on craigslist, as is, for parts.
On the upside, my new laptop with a fancy anti-glare surface will be here in 2 days.
(which is why I didn’t go for a refurb, no antiglare models available in my price range.)
