If you’re going to invest in a new computer/laptop/tablet, make your investment pay off. Find something that you can do with a new system before you buy it.
For the first time in forever, I find my home computer has gotten rather long in the tooth. I think I’ve bought two for the office since I purchased it. Since the C: drive is about out of space, I either need to remove some programs (which feels like abandoning a pet) or buy a new system. So, what new can I do? I’ll need to work on this before I can justify that new computer.
And, yes, I still like a desktop. I’ve been using them for 35 years and have grown completely attached to my big monitor, bigger hard drive, full-size ergonomic keyboard, and lots of ports. I have my iPad for a portable (I admit, my laptop has grown quite dusty) and that suits my needs.
