Denise: J is chuffed to bits. He’s been looking on ebay for a replacement screen for his old notebook: a used item of course as new it would be the best part of £800-£900. But he’s found better: a reconditioned notebook of exactly the same type (Dell Precision M65, J tells me), but with even better processor, memory and hard disk – only two to three years old. And not only found, but bought it – an ebay auction – for just £148. Apparently it has a Finnish keyboard, but he’ll just swap the keyboard from his old notebook. Engineering work will pay for that in less than a day’s labour, so money well spent. But let’s hope nothing else goes wrong – we’ve had enough troubles of late.
