This has been your daily wisdom from Bob's Burgers.

For about 45 minutes this evening, the G, H, J, K, and L keys on my laptop wouldn't work. Those are surprisingly crucial to doing anything notable, yet I was also amazed at the various creative workaounds possible to continue functioning.

Yeah, I need a new computer.

8 years, 11 months. If it croaked tomorrow, I would definitely consider having gotten my money's worth (and it is backed up in case that happens).

damn! and i thought my friend who got seven years from hers was an incredible (and her experience was what convinced me to switch to a macbook in 2011).

My 2011 MacBook started going nuts last week, and I finally figured out that it was because the battery was failing and starting to swell, putting constant pressure in the trackpad from underneath.

Replaced the battery last night, and testing it by typing this now ...

Looks like a successful transplant! I had mine done in probably 2010.
