My web developer class is a BYOD (bring your own device) class so I needed to dig out my 4 year old Sony laptop. They don’t make them anymore so I guess it can be considered a collectible antique.
I’m glad it was able to be powered on after not using it for about a year. It was being super slow though so I decided time for the dreaded wipe out and reinstall Windows. Thankfully after the move I was able to find the restoration DVDs for it and it worked. After much progress bar action it eventually came back up looking like when I got it back in 2012. Then came updates to get it to a 2016 software version. That took even longer. However after all that it was still being slow with the fan making a ton of noise 🙁
