usb problem still happening

Hi all

Should i buy a new laptop or not, below is the problem im having and why i think i should.

The laptop i have is a HP DV2353ea

i put this problem on the forum before and now im at my end as nothing works.

1 usb port will not work will any device except my mouse when i constantly take it out put it in untill it works.
the 2nd usb port will work but loses connection with any external harddrive or usb stick and then will reconnect again (horrible when useing external HDD all the time)

ive got in contact with the makers HP and they sent through links for downloads for the bios and explain to go into the bios and change things and it works for a while but then will come back.

so should i sell this one cheap and get a new one

if i can get £300-£400 for the laptop then i can spend between £800-£1000

my laptop id a hp dv2353ea 1.6ghz 2gb ram 140gb wireless bluetooth card reader cd/dvd writer would this get about £300-£400

which makes me think should i get an apple as i can use window on it?
