Hi guys, my Aftershock S15 is having issues with it's motherboard and i am quoted $960 for the repair. Wanna get ur guys opinion whether i should go ahead with the repair or should i just get a new laptop instead?
if the S15 already meets your needs (i.e. can run your current newest games) and you don't see the need to upgrade and just wanna use the machine for as long as possible, I think just repairing the laptop is fine, especially if every other component is still working ok.

cos frankly imo the current rate of improvements are also slowing. My S17 came from 2016 (pascal architecture) and this year in 2019 nvidia has only moved forward by 1 generation (turing) with no tremendous improvements while the current intel CPU is still on 14nm like my old skylake
