Chaz recently upgraded to a new laptop But his old laptop still works, and it just needs a new battery. Is that an easy repair? Rich says that it probably is. The best thing about the Internet is we can learn how to do just about anything. Also, a 10-year-old laptop often has an easier time with repairing/replacing components like batteries. Rich recommends iFixIt, where Chaz can input his laptop model and get instructions on how to do that. Of course, Youtube is also a great resource.
