A good rule of thumb to follow is — if the cost of repairs is more than 50% of the cost of a new laptop, consider getting a new device. And sometimes, it’s just time for an upgrade. A brand new, speedy laptop makes life easier and sure beats dealing with a beat-up old machine.

Can I use different size HDD for RAID?
For a normal RAID, you can RAID different sized drives together just like you can with same-sized drives. The only “gotcha” is that the RAID will treat all drives in the array as if they were all the same size as your smallest drive.
Do all disks in a RAID have to be the same size?
In a RAID 1 configuration, the size of target disk must be greater or equal to the one of the source disk. Therefore the capacity of the array will be same as the one of the smallest size in the group. The only exception is a spanned volume.
