No, your old laptop is not working fine.

First, the outdated architecture of its CPU means that your laptop runs very slowly and it consumes a lot of power.

Be honest with us. How long does your old laptop take to render the front page of the New York Times website? (Don't worry. There are no JS / flash, just text and images.)

http://www.nytimes.com/subscriptions/inyt/lp8RUYR.html?campaignId=4RUW8

My Chromebook renders it almost instantly.

High power consumption means that you are indirectly responsible for global warming!

Modern CPUs run much faster and consume much less power. You just can't beat physics, can you?

Second, when you factor in the time and effort you need to spend on finding replacement batteries, your old laptop is nothing but a burden to you. Let it go and have a fresh start.

Also, buying spare batteries when one purchases a laptop is not a good plan if the intention is to still use them for ten years. One still needs to purchase fresh batteries when they are needed. Any old batteries, even if unused, won't be good after a few years.
I thought that a smart person like you would understand my meaning. Seems that I am wrong.

Here is my meaning: use the batteries in a round-robin fashion.

Battery life drains very quickly if we keep pushing it to the limit. Right?

. Use battery A for, say, two months. Then let it rest.
. Use battery B for two months. Then let it rest.
. Use battery C for two months. Then let it rest.
. Repeat the process.

In such a way, we can extend the battery life for quite a lot. Give it a try.

Nope, doesn't work. Batteries age even if unused. Sad Always buy new batteries only when needed. You can't keep them resting, they still lose capacity when doing nothing.

Which is why I try to find systems which use standard cell sizes (like 18650) so that replacements will be available.

Yes, I know. The point is that we can prolong battery life by (i) avoiding heavy usage, (ii) keeping the battery at low temperatures when idle, and (iii) using/recharging it regularly.

Those battery packs with 18650-type cells are fading out. Laptops these days are getting lighter and slimmer. Most manufacturers are now opting for thin battery packs like the one in the following link:

http://laptoppartssolution.com/new-original-15-2v-48wh-acer-ac14b8k-4icp5-57-80-laptop-battery/

It is time to try something new.

There is not much one can do to extend the lifetime except for the cooling you mentioned. But keeping batteries in the refrigerator is just weird (and helps by only a small amount unfortunately).

Designed obsolescence: Do not want!

I don't follow all the latest trendy nonsense. I don't care how "sexy" it is, I just want it to be reliable and last for the long term.

It is called "planned obsolescence".

BTW, the high-end laptop that I recommended earlier, Lenovo ThinkPad P50, actually uses those old-school battery packs:

http://shop.lenovo.com/ae/en/itemdetails/4X50K14091/460/4D1673BF631E44A1B8321205B378BC7A

I believe that you can replace the cells of the battery pack by yourself if you have got some soldering skills.

Global warming is good. Bigger crops, more food, softer winters, less energy for heating houses. The only problem I see with the overheating laptops is that it is burning when you put them on your stomach, programming on the couch. Cool

Oh, they know about it, because it already happened before.

The free upgrade offer for Windows 10 will end pretty soon.

Here are a couple of interesting articles on the deadline:

http://www.zdnet.com/article/the-procrastinators-guide-to-free-windows-10-upgrades/

http://www.express.co.uk/life-style/science-technology/690516/Microsoft-Store-Upgrade-Windows-10-Free-PC

Quote:
The US technology firm is now offering to perform a same-day upgrade on any Windows 10-compatible PC in its retail stores. And if the Microsoft Store technicians can't complete the upgrade by the end of the day, customers will be given a free 15-inch Dell Inspiron notebook.
Sounds really tempting!

Windows 10 free upgrade for customers who use assistive technologies
Quote:
For the general public, the free upgrade offer for Windows 10 ends on July 29. However, if you use assistive technologies, you can still get the free upgrade offer even after the general public deadline expires as Microsoft continues our efforts to improve the Windows 10 experience for people who use these technologies.
Refer to:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/accessibility/windows10upgrade

The download page does not require proof of any kind regarding the use of assistive technologies. Cool!

We are still able to get spied on even after 29-July-2016, we just have to pay $129 for the privilege. Well worth it IMO. What could be better than paying a corporation to spy on, monetise, and control our existence. At least that way someone will be taking an interest in our uninteresting lives. And if instead you are some famous interesting person then what a great way to show those pathetic underlings about every little minuscule thing you do in your life.

It is still free of charge ... as long as you claim you use assistive technologies.
