Wax's beloved laptop Jean-Luc died this morning - froze and emitted a rattling noise instead of booting after that. Honestly, he's been a trooper for a mid-price laptop considering that he's about 4 or 5 years old now. Now she has to replace him with a new laptop instead of perhaps getting herself a new desktop again - our two extra machines, Zombie and Osha, are fine with lightweight OSes but not up to regular use with the heavy multi-tasking that implies. That's definitely a bit of a bummer. Now we are further away from being able to set up an extra computer as a media server - we'll have to buy a new motherboard first because mine (from 2007) is the only one we have that could handle it.

Is it possible to just replace the hard drive? That sounds like what happened with my MacBook a month ago -- instead of a new computer, a new drive with more space on it, and it's working.
