I have a super old Dell Latitude Cpi A Series laptop, with nothing useful apart from its shell and size - would it be better/possible to buy a new computer/hard disk or whatever it is to replace the bit that does all the computing, a dvdrw drive and a new battery
to buy a new cheapy laptop for around £200?
I need something to take to uni with wireless capability - although i have a wireless network card so it just has to be able to process that. I have a 250gb passport drive which has everything I need, but I'd want a dvdrw drive and enough memory to play the Sims and not get really hot.
Sorry for not knowing diddly squat about computers. PS i have an NUS card if that's of any use. I'd probably need windows to avoid ocmpatibility issues with random stuff I download.
