I’ll be needing new gadgets soon. My laptop and my tablet have been acting crazy lately and this makes me think they are on their last legs. Read on to find out more about this.

My cell phone is pretty new since I bought it about one year ago. My laptop is about 7 years old, which is ancient in terms of technology. It does have a new hard drive since my mine died about 2 years ago. Other than that, the laptop is pretty old.

It has been overheating after minimal use and makes a horrible grinding noise upon start up. I am trying to hold on as long as possible but I will be in the market for a new laptop pretty soon.

My tablet is also a bit old. It is 6 years old so it has seen it’s time. The issue is with the battery mostly. The tablet simply does not hold a charge and I can’t do simple things like checking email for more than 10 minutes. It is not overheating but it simply will not last through the simple tasks it used to. I have uninstalled unnecessary apps but this looks like an uphill battle with the battery.

I will be needing new gadgets soon even though I am trying to hold off as long as possible.
