Technology Obsolescence at Home

If you are not rich and you just bought a computer you aer going to be stuck with it for atleast two years. You may go in for a upgrade, but buying a new computer may just be out of question. What with some one who just bought Core 2 Duo last week and sees a Core 2 Quad 8 core computer the next day in news paper with another 40% improvement in performance. As a user you have to learn to live with technology obsolescence at home . You could obviously come up with a innovative solution, sell the current system to a less needy like Primary School kid and go in for the latest master blaster computer. Or then upgrade or wait for another year before buying your dream m/c , which would not be so after a couple of week or months . What with intel is already working on a new system with 80 cores and research on on new alternate technology and nano technology.

I think that this is that we all have to live with, and in fact, does it really matter?

I think not- it only matters for the high technology users, and for the rest of us, the main concern should be the completion of the tasks for which the equipment (PC, mobile etc) was bought

also, MONEY rests all arguments :)
