Nope. Primary disk doesn't boot half the time - it's just about ready to
die, I think. The drive bay has gone south - I can no longer eject the DVD
drive or my 2nd HD. Some keys are becoming a bit tough. USB sometimes
doesn't recognize devices - and I verified that one through a recent NetBSD
kernel, so don't ya'll be throwin that XP line at me ;-)
It is, unfortunately, seemingly all hardware. It's enough of a pain now
that I have to work at using it. I need to rely on my laptop - and I don't
have tons of trust in it at this point.
