I thought people really stopped caring as much about all of this stuff once the speeds all got super fast and basic computers had more memory than most of us will ever use. Maybe not? I guess the gamers keep up with this a lot more. I remember in the 90's we'd get a new PC every few years and would be amazed at the new one. Now, meh. I bought a $1,200 Dell laptop for college back in 2004, then after it was junk I was given a $400 Gateway laptop bought from Walmart for Christmas 3 years ago and still have that. Does all I need.
