Computers are fragile items, even as electronics go, and as such one must take great care not to damage, bump or break them. Often times, even desk top computers can be the victim of injury by getting knocked off of a desk, knocked over, kicked, flooded or otherwise broken or smashed. If desktop computers are at risk for this kind of damage, then laptops are certainly highly likely to suffer some kind of damage at some point or another. The damage might be external or internal, purely cosmetic or severe enough to cause a problem in the functionality of the machine, but whatever the reason it’s not easy deciding what to do with an old laptop computer. If it’s still in pretty good shape you could keep using it, sell it to another user, or get it fixed up (especially if it’s still on the warranty). If it’s pretty to really trashed and thrashed however it might be time to consider some alternative options. Getting a laptop fixed up to the correct condition to sell it to another end user is often expensive enough that it defeats the purpose. What are some other options out there?
