http://live.pirillo.com/ - One would think that a power user would always have the latest and greatest technology: the fastest and the best computer. But, in fact, it has been almost 4 years since Chris last upgraded his machine.
Lin asks: how do you know when it's time to upgrade the entire computer (getting a new one) versus buying one new component?
It all depends on what kind of computer you have, what you need it to do, and how much you are willing to spend.
A good piece of advice is to keep the same computer for a few years, since getting a new computer can be a pain: you need to transfer all of your data and settings to the new machine.
During the years you use your computer are the years you should upgrade the individual components. If you find that you need more power in your machine, and you can upgrade your component, then you should probably go down that route.
When your computer stops doing what you need it to do, then it's time to consider upgrading or replacing the computer.
When do you upgrade or replace your computer?
