If you want to use it, and it has decent specs... that's your call.  $200 for a good performing laptop is pretty good.

 

I don't know what limited cooling has to do with repairing, but sure?

755m used laptop and $200 fix? Sounds like a waste of money to me.

I don't see how your laptop will get stolen on a trip unless you are extremely careless with it.

Wouldn't be worth it if you have literally any other option. That is a really expensive fix for a laptop you can find used in good shape for 50-80 bucks.

You are talking about a laptop with a mobile GPU that gets outperformed by modern Intel integrated graphics. For 250 in my area I can get a fairly recent used laptop.

 

Look at your local markets. Shouldnt be too hard to find a gaming laptop from this generation under 100 bucks. Most of those Ebay listings wont sell. Look at recent completed listings and then half that value for local listings.
