“about 10 years of use and still going strong”

Written on: 17/11/2012 by jonsay (4 reviews written)

This is by far the most reliable laptop I have owned. I know its impossible to buy one now but that is a shame. I thought the harddrive would have given up the ghost years ago but it is still rock solid even if it is only 32GBytes in size.

It hasn`t been without its problems as nothing is. The casing around my screen is cracked and missing pieces where the hinges are. The DVDRW drive stopped working for a while until I unscrewed it, took it out and then re-installed it. I haven`t had any problems with that since either.

At the time of purchase I paid £1200 which was a huge amount of money but I have owned other laptops that are used as the family computer which all failed to live upto expectation or just failed. The combined total for my other laptops were more than this one and each one of them only lasted about 3 years maximum.

Oh one other thing, the battery died about 7 years ago, but using the power adapter has been plenty good enough for me. I just leave the battery plugged in even if it doesn`t hold a charge.

I know it sounds like I have had problems but they were all worked around. I write a successful website with this machine and it is perfect for the job, and when I want a change I just boot up Spellforce with wonderful 3D graphics. I love this computer even with its faults.
