should i get a new laptop?

i have a macbook pro from 2014 thats slow, the battery doesnt last longer than an hour and the bottom gets hot all the time, i was going to get a new battery because thats what i should do according to the internet,but should i just get another laptop? i cant afford another mac which fine because all i really use it for is photo storage and digital drawing but i dont want to spend a lot of money to get a new laptop when i only have to spend a little to get a new battery. like i said though, its from 2014 so im not sure what to do

    You definitely do not need a new laptop.  You need a new battery and a new SSD hard drive to improve the speed.  Find a tech savvy friend who can help you upgrade it.

    You need to ask yourself how bad it must get before you will replace it. It doesn't sound like it has much life left.
