I make a semi-major upgrade once every other year on my systems. I have
a laptop too, they're definitely boring, although I've upgraded that one
too. But you're only limited to upgrading RAM and hard disk on laptops.
On the laptop, I've upgraded both RAM and storage, from 4GB to 8GB, and
from an HDD to an SSD. The upgrade to a water cooler on my desktop will
allow me to avoid upgrading the processor for several more years.
Doesn't really occupy too much more of my time beyond that.


My point is "why". Computers are boring, not just laptops.

I'm not upgrading it to make it exciting, I'm upgrading it to keep it
useful.

There isn't enough interesting *to* upgrade anymore. Times have
changed.


All times are GMT +1. The time now is 08:35 AM.
