[PUBLIC] The Turing Machine Advances

After QUARTZ was rendered immobilized by hinge damage, and EMERALD still having worrisome damage to its power brick, I moved using my Christmas gifts to procure a replacement. Today RUBY arrived. The 9th mainline machine I've owned, and the 8th laptop, RUBY is a Duo Core 2.2 Ghz machine with 8GB of main storage, the most I've ever had in a single device. It also represents the first non-server 64-bit machine I've ever owned, and the first Windows 7 box. Its got fully a half-terabyte of disk available, and 512GB RADEON for graphical purposes. This machine marks the end of my Alienware experiments for the time being, being the first on-brand Dell I've purchased since SAPPHIRE in 2006. I'm very excited to bring this lighter, more streamlined workstation into the field to see how well it does once its been loaded for operation.

As a former pro, can you offer any recommendations on what services I should trust to pull data off of this drive?

It's sufficiently damaged that it makes grindy noises when powered and doesn't register to motherboards. This requires special hardware, I think.
