Single Status Update
Consider buying a new (used) laptop. It has about the same horsepower as mine, but better screen and battery. (and more expensive as well). Makes sense or it's just consumer rabies?

Don't forget to check speakers - I received an insurance "upgrade" when my laptop charging port came too loose - they didn't repair, replace instead - and the sound is terrible. Can't hear a thing without headphones. Screen is better, though AMD burns hot.
Ultimately - this "upgrade" was a "downgrade" and I wish I had simple soldered the jack instead of thinking a 5 year newer laptop would be better - because it's not.
It's why its name is "craptop".
I ended up buying a new (possibly refurbished) on black market. Bigger battery and more horsepower, roughly the same price.
