Thought I'd have to buy a new computer b/c it was trashed with a virus and was old. I had bought a really good one 5 years ago. Quad core, AMD. Anyways, the computer guy fixed it for $150. Yay! That was last year. It's still going strong and of all the computers I have bought it's really been a work horse, a good one.<quoted text>
Who says you have to? I've got a phone that came out in 2011 and it does everything I need it to.
<quoted text>Again, who says you have to. The computer I'm typing on is over 3 years old and it replaced one that was probably 5 years old at the time.
When getting a computer, buy the best one at the time that you can afford and it'll last. Amirite?
BTW, I am with you. I love technology. I'm just too cheap to get the latest and greatest. I wait until I need it.
