Technology today just moves lighting fast! By the time you walk out of the store with your new gadget, there’s practically a newer one available that’s better. This holds true especially for laptops and computers. The article by PCWORLD provides some great tips on when you should buy a new computer.
I personally still use a laptop I bought back in 2005 when I started my company. A Dell Inspiron 6400 – T2300 Intel @ 1.66GHz, 2 Gig RAM, 320GB HD.
Still boots up fast! I’ve only rebuilt the hard drive ONCE since I bought it because I lost a battle with a virus and it was due time to upgrade anyways. That’s when I bought a new hard drive – 320GB. This was an upgrade from 120Gb.
By keeping the registry clean and uninstalling unused software, I’ve been able to keep it healthy. Because it’s an older laptop, I run a clone of drive every week – just in case.
Anyways, have a read of the article and share the age of your laptop and what you do to keep it going!
