One of my team has been handed a turd of a laptop which because of corporate policies, has to be fixed rather than replaced. Started of with a noisy fan 2 months ago, led to a warning on the hd. Hd got replaced, but machine was then blue screening. Motherboard was replaced then they discovered it was software and then there was no sound. Today, another engineer appeared to fix the sound and found previous engineer hadn't connected the cable. Whilst doing that, they killed the hard drive....

    Yeah that sounds a lot cheaper than just replace the machine.
