After 5 years my computer is dying and I'm not sure if I can get it fixed or what. The part where the AC adapter comes in smells funny and I can't get any power. Anyone know if that's something that could be fixed for cheap?
Anyway, I'd rather spend money on bikes than on computers and I don't care about having the latest technology. My only requirement is that I need a laptop and I need an ethernet network adapter. Other than that I don't really care. Has anyone ever bought a refurbished computer? I've been looking at retrobox.com and it looks pretty interesting. Anyone have any other good sites? I'm usually a big eBay fan but I don't know squat about computers, so I'd rather not press my luck there.
