Given Macrium backup hurdles, does anyone recommend online backup services such as Crashplan?
You need to be doing backups every day as I mentioned before, and while I can't personally use Cloud services owing to ISP limitations, maybe you don't have those. Still, I'd rather have a backup at my elbow/in my fire safe than to rely on the cloud.

If you are truly concerned that your laptop may fail, I would just buy another, similar one. While it seems unlikely you could get a new E6520, I did buy a brand-new E6540 a year ago January from the Dell Outlet store; maybe you should haunt that place to see what you might get.

If I were you though I'd want a machine that would work with my dock(s) also.

BTW I use Acronis True Image to backup my E6540 and owing to a software application problem, I recently had to recover from a backup image just a week or so ago. This has only happened to me a couple of times in the last 10 years, but it's a great relief to have images you can rely on in a dire situation.
