Default software transfer

so recently my Asus computer (n55ojv-db72t) cover, screen, and other parts broke, and i dont want to pay for the parts when it could be cheaper to get a new computer. But the problem with this, is that i wanted to keep the stuff on my old laptop, like the drive, software, hardware, and other computer systems. So can i buy another Asus computer at a cheap price, and transfer the stuff i wanted to keep.

Hi you could use a docking cable and transfer data from your old drive to your new drive. This is what I use!
Amazon.com: Vantec CB-ISATAU2 SATA/IDE to USB 2.0 Adapter Supports 2.5-Inch, 3.5-Inch, 5.25-Inch Hard Disk Drives (Black): Electronics

ok, but if i do get a new cheaper computer, it'll properly not be as strong as the original, so i need to switch hardware parts. plus how do you even use 1 of those.

p.s srry i meant hardware, not software

Your only chance is to get a PC of same model #and same motherboard then you can use the same win ops and legitimate your key.
i myself had a Lenovo thinkcenter m series with Linux,i wanted to get win 10 on it for free so i got me another Same Lenovo Model # same motherboard with Win 7 installed very cheap on Ebay,then i cloned another HDD from win 7, and put in the other Lenovo and now i have both PC ready to be upgraded to 10 for free.

that's the plan and a good one,the price you pay to repair it, you can buy same model# on Ebay cheap and keep your broken existing pc good parts for future swap;
it's not only that , you can use your existing hdd with the win OPS on it too since it's same mother board and cpu it will be legitimated by MS; if it's same model# and mother board,
