I know that feeling. The old laptop I used before I built my current PC had notoriously bad build quality. The battery corrupted quickly, one of the hinges for opening it was partially broken (though you could probably blame this one on me), a row of keys stopped working, etc. After the battery failed a few months after having it I had to keep the charger on it at all times, so eventually I ended up getting a wired keyboard and plugged the laptop into a monitor turning it into a kinda makeshift desktop.
I think you took that the wrong way, everything is fine. That was years ago, I've built a rig since and gotten a bit more literate about computers. I was just trying to say that I know how you feel, good luck to you with your future plans!
Seeing this a bit late, but it made me flash back to when my first laptop's battery died. Had to keep it plugged in to use it while I waited for the replacement, and I was in constant fear of the plug jiggling out of place (happened far too many times).
