the 7500 Inspiron Laptop.
Let's just talk some small figures.
Battery would cost approximately $150
Compare these costs to a new one. Remember the old one can still have something else go out on it.
My opinion, I'd purchase a new one.
I have a pentium 3 inspiron 7500 with a 6 gb hard drive,a perfectly good cd/floppy drive, a bad battery, a broken keyboard, a pci slot, and 96 mb of memory. Everything else works perfectly. I can and do use a ps2 keyboard until/if the keyboard gets fixed, and may be able to fix the keyboard itself. I am wondering if it is worth replacing the battery and keyboard. I am not in need of a much faster laptop so replacing would be a more expensive option for me but if there is any upgrading I could do with the graphics card and cpu I would like to do that to extend the life of the laptop. I also want to know if there is any kind of upgrades I could make to the hard drive. I like this laptop because parts are cheap and it is easy to add/remove parts. Thankyou in advance, superordenador
