You know the little plugy-iny-thingy place that connects the power plug to the laptop? It wouldn’t actually connect and the battery was lasting like… 45ish minutes. I pulled every trick I could think of. I asked all my nearby computer gurus.

The Reader’s Digest version is that it was going to cost more to fix than it was worth.

Soooooo… I have another laptop. It took me a while to get it MOSTLY configured and working the way I like, but it is Lisa-usable.
