My computer is a refurbished HP desktop that I bought in 2007. My big brother, Jeff (OrmontUS), advised me that the hard disk might crash at some unpredictable point. I bought a new Seagate hard disk (2 T) from Amazon.com yesterday at a great discount. Hope to refurb my refurb and keep it going with Windows XP another 5+ years. The cost of the hard drive + Norton Ghost to copy the disk + a new cable = $110. Should I ever need a laptop, I already have a mini-computer, but I usually work at my desk.I replaced the timing belt in my 1998 Honda Civic hatchback a few months ago (on Steve's advice). Hoping to drive it 10+ more years.It makes LBYM sense to "Use it up, wear it out." Low-cost replacement of parts can extend the life of capital equipment, extending the "wear it out" time. Over a lifetime, fewer new replacements can save hundreds, even thousands, of dollars.Wendy
