Hi, Hibby.

I'll be in bragging about my skill replacing the cooling fan in my HP
dm4 Beats Edition laptop and confessing that it took me so long because
the eBay supplier I bought the replacement fan for *exactly* my model of
laptop sent the wrong fan! Got the new fan and fitted it on Monday.

I replaced the 750GB HDD with a 250GB SSD while I had it in bits :-)

Now got 2 at SSD:

Interestingly, the Crucial CT250BX100SSD1 is only half the speed of the
Seagate ST240HM000-1G515 - Probably because it was half of the cost(!).
