Laptops are the worst when it comes to hardware issues. I use one because I have to be able to take my primary PC wherever I go but if something goes wrong it's so much harder to fix than a desktop. My previous laptop, for instance, was crashing more and more frequently and worked more slowly the longer it was on, which led me to formatting it a few times, until I finally opened it up and saw the problem had nothing to do with memory or anything... the cooler had just stopped working completely. I was cooking my computer and didn't even realize it! Couldn't find another cooler that fit in that space for a good price so just got a new one, a great choice in retrospect, but at the time I was just angry that I didn't have anywhere near the amount of repair options as I'd have with a desktop.
