My computer is dying again, apparently due to a failing hard drive. I'll be ordering a new hard drive shortly and should hopefully have it installed within the next few weeks. In the meantime, though, my posts might become sporadic again.
Once my hard drive is replaced, I plan to return to posting in full force. However, if the problem isn't the hard drive, I'm going to face an interesting plastic- and waste-related question:
Do I send my whole computer back to Dell and spend hundreds of dollars getting it repaired, or do I buy a brand-new, problem-free computer for just a few hundred dollars more?
Argh. I guess my goal to use less plastic dictates that I send it back, but I don't want to. Can someone please provide me with some electronic waste statistics that will convince me to send my computer in?
