My old laptop is about to die. I've had it for 15 years and it's seen me through all sorts of job changes, house moves and so many situations.

I've got a new, modern slim line one updating as I type. It looks amazing. So speedy! My old one looks so sad, just sitting there like it's been dumped. I've betrayed its loyalty. I know it knows this.


Cheer me up mumsnet with things you feel bad about when you upgraded. grin

Felt the same upgrading my iPhone but my last one went to a good home (my boyfriend) but yep always feel sad.

Same with leaving work for the last time and my desk. I think it’s just a mark of the end of an era.

Fifteen year old laptop? I had no idea a laptop would last that long.

I think you should frame i and hang it on a wall or at least put it out to grass/stud or whatever the laptop equivalent is. It's served you well. sad

Sorry that's not very cheery.

Oh yes I feel sorry for objects all the time! I recently bought a box of 8 ceramic grey and white door knobs in all different patterns. I only needed to use 7 though and felt so dreadful for the little knob I didn't use 😢 left sitting in it's box I kept feeling that it must have been so happy when it was bought and off to fulfil it's destiny and then it didn't get picked.

I also baked some white rolls recently and they came out so puffy and smooth and sweet looking, I was really quite moved by them.

I'm too sensitive 😂

Oh yes! My first car! It was a little Fiat 126, air cooled engine. I part-exchanged it in for a newer, water cooled one. I cried when I left it behind...

Those poor little door knobs.

My laptop has been through the wars and repaired three times, twice for drinks spilled on it.

It's like a tank.
