Sony VAIO (Model PCG-7184L). Crack it open or fix it up.. or what?

I have an older Sony VAIO that I purchased a few years back and have not turned on in a long time - do not know where the charger is. I have a new laptop with a crappier processor but we make it work. The Sony's wifi capabilities would not work near the end of my usage of it. I like to take things apart and salvage the parts if possible and use with my desktop etc. I had a newer Samsung laptop which I took apart and got the hard drive out of. So, should I just do the same with this thing? I don't like clutter and things just laying around I want to put it to use or rip her open. Any ideas / suggestions? I had thought about trying the server thing (have read cool things about media servers etc) but being that the wifi did not function the last several times I used it, this does not seem to be the best idea..

Thank you!
Any help is appreciated!

Yep Jeremy I would just salvage the hard drive (you have) the optical drive and the RAM. If you felt like it why not the CPU cooling system etc

Depending on the age anything easily removable could be sold off.
