I'm going to be a freshman in college this fall and a few people have told me to get a new laptop for school. I've had a pc for 4 years now and it still runs fine. Had to replace the battery once and it did crash after about a year of having it, but I've had no other problems. It was getting a little slow, but then I downloaded the new firefox (I'd been running a REALLY outdated internet explorer) and everything seems fine.

Should I wait to buy a new mac or just get it now? It seems wasteful to buy a new one when this one seems to be running fine..

Get a portable hard drive and do daily back ups and save your money until you're ready to buy one

why won't my laptop work?

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
