That’s it. I am placing a ban on anyone who comes to me with a laptop >4 years old for “fixing”
There comes a time when hardware is dead an you have to move on. Sure ill advise on what laptop you need by why bother. You’ve already decided you “don’t want to spend much ” so off you go. Head to Tesco get one on sale and marvel at how you’ve just bought outdated technology with no battery life.
Revel in the tea and coffee making you’ll have to do as norton / McFafee grinds your startup time into an eternity.
Just get an iPad or a tablet instead and save us both this pain.
