a $50 joystick... but I'm not sure if that was me. If it wasn't, then one of those 1/8" to cassette converters.

My laptop; although I didn't break it, it was a can of anti-perspirant spray that decided to fall from the shelf above.
A picture tells a thousand words. :cry:

Fortunately it happened at home, thus it was covered by the contents insurance.

antiperspirant? man you have to sweat a lot, or was it "economical 2 galon pack"?
but seriously laptops seems to be weaker and weaker, well cost reducing

...and what is that supposed to mean?

It was my first laptop purchase. Made in 1999, bought secondhand in 2002. Quite decent for it's time.

The insurance company replaced it with a brand new (in 2004) Acer Travelmate 240, and quite frankly I hate it. Only a celery processor, only one battery slot (the old one had two), only two hours battery life, Intel 855GM that's awkward for Xorg to handle (even the simple task of VGA-out was nearly impossible until Xorg 7 went stable, and even now video playback only works on one screen), keys tend to get "stuck".

And don't even begin to ask me about that lousy, stinking, sodding touchpad! :evil:

I broke my pride and self esteem...
Besides that, an old tube estimated at about 200$ (glass breaks so easily).

Money wise, the plastic covering the screen of my GPS receiver. Costs about 100 euros to repair, excluding shipping.

I'm very careful with my stuff.

My mind.
I would have some more money now if it would still be... "sane".
I'm not sure that was my fault though.

Oh, and my last (15 GB) iPod.
