Help me make the best of my laptop.

I know. Forums are down though so I come here.

I've got a 6yr old Sony vaio laptop. Probably the worst purchase of my life. It was quite good for a year but has degraded into little more than a heavy space heater. The thing runs incredibly hot, I'm pretty sure that it's actually crippled itself because of it's P4 brain. Anyways, I've all but given up on it, I use it solely for typing up papers when nothing else is available. I've got a lot of software on it that I don't need and think I'm going to reformat.

Here's my question;

Can I do more with it?

It has a pretty nice screen which would be cool to use for...well anything else, don't know how to do it.

I was considering modding it to help it run cooler...Like a steel mesh case, but I've never done anything like that before.

What do you guys do when your computers die?

Hey Dtoid. Welcome to perritoid!

I'm a 23 year old artist/teacher. While in University I experimented mostly with Animation, Video, and Games.

The lovely [dearly departed] Anthony Burch* featured the fruits of my experimentation here on Destructoid as part of the Indie Nation Series Which probably is one of the coolest things that has ever happened to me! One of many reasons why I love Destructoid.

*The [formerly] Resident Person Named Anthony Who Isn't Anthony Perri.

My first console was the SNES. It remains my favourite, and I've been playing games ever since without pause. Recently I've been a little burned out on the modern sensibilities of a suddenly overwhelmingly Western market. Most of the HD games don't appeal to me.

I currently live in Korea where I teach english and avoid Starcraft [and the north].
