Found 3rd Aug 2011
The audio jack (3.5mm) of my 3yo laptop has just about carked it, as is wont to do with everything i've ever owned that has a 3.5mm audio jack, and I can't live without music while I use it.

I don't really need the latest piece of kit, so i'm fine with mid-range stuff. My question is, what is the cost of repairing it? I'm wondering because if it's just too expensive, then i'll look to replace the whole laptop with something new.

Good initial idea, but generally can't find, cheap, in-ear bluetooth earphones. Thanks for the idea, though.
