Having a single machine, a single point of failure in your circumstances is 
just plain dangerous. What would you do if it caught fire (had that happen 
to a monitor here, luckily I was in the room), or got stolen? Scratch 
around looking for identical hardware? 

If it's so important, buy a new machine and OS, install the apps you want, 
and carry on working on your old machine until this is done, then shelve it 
as a backup, or give it some less demanding stuff to do.
