Waste of bullets and technology.
What if the laptop suddenly went completely FUBAR for some puzzling reason?
Gee honey - you tell me your laptop isn't working? Maybe you need to rebuild it. You go ahead and get started, and I'll help if you have questions.
Sounds the same as households like mine (generations ago) where the television would mysteriously quit working. Parents played it dumb, until something important was on, and then - hey presto - the TV started working again. This worked brilliantly until us kids worked out how to fix the TV ourselves. I guess that backfired, didn't it (grin)
