Almost New Laptop

Spent the past few weeks gutting my 5-year-old laptop and turning it into a new one.

Got a new LCD screen to replace my old cracked screen, 4GB of RAM (up from 2GB), and 500GB hard drive (up from 160 GB).  Managed to find all the parts for less than $250 on eBay and Amazon, and watched lots of Youtube tutorials on upgrading computer parts. 

 

Finally, upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 8.  Hoping this lasts another four years!
