To be honest, I'll be glad to see this 4 year old POS go away. It's slow. The CD/DVD drive failed about 2 year ago. It's never seen a lap. Adn it's a PITA to upgrade.
A couple year ago I wanted to max out the SDRAM (DDRAM?) only to find out I would have to surgically remove the keyboard to install the second gig of memory. WTF?
Then, when the internal writer failed I was "informed" that the only compatible replacement would come from HP for a mere $400. Yeah. I went for the outboard Sony Universal instead and, honestly, I have never used it.
Bought the external USB HD for home video backups of the baby. Then I got a Sony DVD player burner that I could hook teh camera to directly so, I have never used this laptop for home vids either.
Mebe I can follow a lead here. Get a decent desktop to replace this POC. Buy another cheap external HD, and replace the internal drive and dedicate this one to brewing.
Sounds like a plan to me.
