I have TravelMate P273-MG-6448 (Windows 10/500GB SSD). I just cloned the original drive to SSD and swapped them. It's working very well.
It has an old software that the company doesn't exist anymore. Luckily it's been running well with W10. I cannot risk to lose this software (don't have disc nor exe file).
Here is my questions:
I'm worried about hardware failure.
1) If I buy an exact same used Acer laptop, does the original hard drive above work on this used laptop?
2) If it doesn't work. How much does it cost to fix it? For example, Apple has fixed repair cost (I believe it's around $300 for MacBook, no matter what is broken). Does Acer has a similar program?
I'm using this software for my work everyday, so I'd like to prepare for major hardware crash (something reminded me about this).
