Is is bad to have a new computer? Of course it's good. Be happy about it.... and get to know it better.

Who says you're going to have to upgrade? At the price of upgrading, you're better off keeping what you have and simply buy another one (of a faster updated technology)

You have something that works very well and fast. Of the 4 computers I have, that computer you have is faster than 2 of mine. Please... do me and yourself a favor,,,, don't try to keep up with the Jones'. If your computer runs and works, and performs the way you want and need it to..... save your money, and make sure upgrading ISN'T on your list of "things to do". I have a computer way older than yours, a 650 MHz, 400M RAM, and that things runs like it wants me. It doesn't crash, it doesn't "blue screen" on me, and it runs the most powerful programs that are out there.

On one of my other omputers, that isn't much more than the one I mentioned, is running Macromedia Cold Fusion on it. I have probably the most lowest graded computers than people use today..... but neither of any of the four I have, ever crash, or do the un-expected..... and make me want to trash them.

If you get tired of your computers, use them for documents, recipies, information lookups, web searches,.. etc.. I can go on and on and on.... Don't ever let anyone convince you that your computer is too old to do it's job... That's simply not true. And I'm a witness four time more... to prove it.

The computer you have is not only good... it's excellent. It works... right?... it does it's job... right?... Well, tell them you've heard it from me.

When will you need to upgrade it- when the things you want to use on it dont work anymore.

My computer is slower than yours but it works fine for me. If you were to go spend 3 thousand on a new pc in a year or two its worth maybe 900 or less.

Dont worry about getting the best get what you need.
