  1. Well, another year has come and gone, and my T-5026 doesn't seem a day over two.
    Stalwart, implacable, resolute, faithful, ardent, unfailing with journeyman's endeavor are only a few of the adjectives that apply to my E-buddy BFF.

    Join with me now and sing; "For she's a jolly good fellow, which raybay'll probably deny"!

    I bought this old girl on a Valentines day, who knew we'd be together this long.:grinthumb

    Here's the parts casualty list thus far:

    1. Bestec 300 Watt PSU
    2. Antec 350 Watt "Smartpower" PSU
    3. OEM TSST DVD burner (I think I put one too many discs in it too many times).
    4. 512MB DDR333 DIMM (CompUSA generic crappola branded "Bravo"). More like "away it goes".:dead:

    I'd even venture to say that the machine smells like lilacs as it warms gently to operating temperature! :rolleyes:;):haha:
  2. SNGX1275

    I can't really remember how old mine are. I think this one is 2 years old next month. Still have my original install of Vista Home Premium on it. No casualties on hardware either (now watch something die soon). My laptop is about 3.5 years old, only hardware issue I had with it was some bad upgrade RAM that came with it when I bought it.

    How'd you manage to kill 2 power supplies?
