-the battery doesn’t work. It’s the third time I’ve had it replaced in the past year. The second I pull the plug, it shuts down. Literally.
-There’s about 300 MB of storage space left in the hard drive.
-The fan turns on about 30 seconds after I start up the computer. And it seems to be getting louder every day. There’s now a very noticeable rattling sound – so loud, in fact, that I stopped bringing it into lectures.
-With the speed at which it heats up (rattling fan notwithstanding), it could heat up a cup of coffee.
-The keys are on the verge of coming loose – especially the right SHIFT key and the J key.
-It lags horrendously whenever I try to watch a video that is remotely high-quality and not hosted on YouTube.

-The screensaver function doesn’t work.
-The right edge of the laptop casing is chipped.
