Development machine problems

During spring break the hard drive of my development machine developed I/O errors. I’ve been able to recover all of my sources but a majority of my email has disappeared.
I’ve re-installed the machine but unfortunately it seems part of my drive is really bad.

This all means I won’t be able to develop or release my WordPress plugins and git, or do support on my forum for a while, at least until I get a new machine. I know I probably could buy myself a new drive, but the machine is a 3 year old laptop, I’m not sure if I want to invest money in it, even though it could be cheap.
So currently I’m looking for a replacement laptop, deciding on the configuration and most importantly price of course.
