Sometimes letting go of a laptop is like letting go of relationship you’ve become too comfortable in.
It holds all your secrets. You know it inside and out. You believe it’s better to stay with the old than start over with something new.
And let’s face it, change is always hard.
Being loyal to an electronic device isn’t odd. Many people hold on to phones, tablets, and laptops longer than they should. It’s mainly a force of habit.
Technology is moving quickly and keeping up with what’s new can be scary and expensive.
Here are five signs that it’s time to sell your laptop.
The Battery no Longer Holds a Charge
Does wireless really mean wireless when it comes to your laptop? If your computer doesn’t have wireless capabilities, that can be an issue.
Speaking of wireless, can you go 15 minutes without being plugged into an electrical outlet?”
Yes, you can buy a new battery, but the truth is brand batteries are expensive.
When it comes time to replace the battery inside your laptop computer you may consider a cheaper brand. This may not be the best or safest option. Some have caught fire because they were not designed for the laptop they were placed in.
Also, economy batteries may not last long and die faster, due to other performance issues with the laptop.
