I finally got an estimate on my laptop today. The video chip on the system board is slightly cracked, and that is causing instability with the video display. They were able to get video to come up a few times, but even when they did it would cut out after a few minutes. To repair the laptop would cost $625 ($475 for a new system board, $150 for labor).

So, do I authorize the repairs on a 3-year-old laptop, or do I buy a new one that I can't really afford and would thus be purchasing on credit? Being without one is not really an option I am comfortable with.
