Why spend money on a new laser when you can just run a ps2 emulator?

The slim ones are different, but not by too much. Just keep in mind that they use a different laser module than the fats.

PS2 lasers are kinda difficult to replace, but if you take your time it'll go just fine.

All you need to do is remove the old one, verify its' firmware number, and buy a matching replacement.

Here's a tutorial on the mechanical bits: blog.hardcoregaming101.net/2011/08/replacing-ps2-laser.html

You could also use the pcsx2 if you're in a jam.

PS2s are so common that you'll have no problem finding a replacement unit.

PS2 is in my opinion among the top 3 best consoles ever made.

I honestly agree with mostly because of how it focused on single player rather than multiplayer as being the main selling point. Not to mention, imo, it was the ultimate 3rd party console to make games for because most developers went with a low res graphics engine for gameplay making the games lower budget, and easier to make. I remember an episode of How it's Made describing why the PS2 was so cheap to make as opposed to other consoles and their games, even compared to past systems.
