I've taken many of our office laptops and bumped then with SSD and if the OS is W10 (not here to debate but for the office and family this has meant less work for my brother and I) we tidy them up and put them back into service.
Now the power port is a common thing to replace but unless you have a great repair shop, it will be time to move on.
If you give the forum some idea of use, members and I will share ideas.
My HP laptop has been really great, but I've been using I think I bit more than it was intended. Recently, a few keys have become hard to depress (most annoyingly the space bar), plus the port into which the power cord is plugged seems be be wearing out; I have to wiggle it around sometimes to connect to the power source.
Still, I kind of hate to part with it. I'm pretty sure the guy at the pc shop will try to talk me into getting a new one, but I just wanted to get other opinions as to whether having this one fixed would be cost-effective
