1997 - Packard Bell Pentium 1 166Mhz, 16Mb RAM, 2.1Gb HDD (upgraded to 48Mb RAM) 2001 - Home built AMD 550Mhz, 64Mb RAM, 40Gb HDD (upgraded to 1.1Ghz processor) 2005 - Mesh 1.5Ghz, 2Gb RAM, 80Gb HDD (upgraded to 160Gb HDD) 2009 - Dell dual-core 2.6Mhz, 3Gb RAM, 320Gb HDD (added 500Gb external HDD) 2013 - Surface Pro! That's how my computer history has gone... an upgrade every 4 years. To be honest, I have no idea why anymore lol. It's just the way it's gone. Now the Surface is my replacement, I'm wondering if I'll continue with my 4 yearly upgrade, or whether I'll just keep buying new Surface models that come out. To be honest I think I'll stick to every 4 years, but we'll see how are you gonna play it?
