Hi guys,

I need some of your experience and help in laptops. Last year i bought a laptop from a friend, an Acer Notebook. It was nice but got slow, and now is broke up. :x

Oh, too bad. I was thinking maybe if the components were relatively good you could swap them into a different chassis. That;s off the table with those. Sorry
