My 2-year old Acer Timeline X series laptop has a damaged heat sync and is over heating and shutting down on me on occasion. I was told by a technician that it will cost at least $200 to replace the heat sync and CPU fan (parts and labor). It seems foolish to do that so I will need to buy a new PC.

Basically, I do a lot of multi-tasking, surfing, word processing, and I watch videos. I am currently a student so I hope to be able to use programs such as Cool Edit Pro and Sony Vegas for editing audio and video, too. Based on my experience of short laptop lives, I would like to keep the cost down. Any suggestions as to what to buy and where? Located in Winnipeg, Canada.
