My laptop died :(

May 9th, 2010 at 11:43 am

My husband's laptop died a few months ago and apparently mine died yesterday. I am very bummed. I had a few things of mine saved on a zip drive, but unfortunatley most were saved on the laptop. I think I will take it in tomorrow and see if they can get it to work, or at least enough for me to access my files....otherwise I have a lot of work to do with spreadsheets to get my info back in place. Let that be a life lesson to me and hopefully anyone that is reading this is backing their files up right now! So if I am MIA for a week or two that is why. I have access to a laptop on the weekends, so at least I can check in then. We will most likely be getting a new laptop either way because mine was 6 1/2 years old and used an average of 5 hrs a day, probably more....so at least we got our moneys worth from it! It was getting realllllllly realllly slow, especially since my husband's died so we were both using mine. I am trying to decide if I want to take the money out of savings for it, or do a 0% interest deal, i know we can get 0% interest anywhere we go, or can just pick one of the 0% offers out of the mail that we get daily.....have not decided which route to go yet. I really just need a laptop for internet access and Excel, so if we need to wait a little bit to get the best deal we can. I know my job also has some discount programs for computers/laptops, so I am gonna check that out tomorrow.

    My laptop is a work computer, but I still back most important files on Google documents just in case.

    If you only need internet and Excel, have you thought about getting a Netbook instead? Might be cheaper than a laptop?

    Yeah we are thinking about getting a Netbook since we don't actually need it for work or anything major. Mostly just for personal use and enjoyment, oh and for my blog of course. Smile After talking to DH we are going to use his work laptop for now and see what the repair place says about mine. If it will cost more then $100 to fix (which I am almost positive it will) then it will probably be best to get a new one. But no rush if we can still use DH's when we need to.
