I don't have any PC's that were minted any less than about 4-6 years ago. My main development box is a Dell XPS 8300 (i7/2600) with 16GB of main and a 1TB SSD. The machine is just flat a processing monster and running Windows 7 as are all my other PC's (of which I have 5). The XPS and a couple other machines are also i7's ... plenty of power. Enough of this upgrade nonsense. I've played with Windows 10 (wasted entirely too much time with it, too) which I call the "adware" version of Windows. Until and unless I'm forced to go to Windows 10 because one of my machines just has to be replaced I'll drive this equipment into the ground.

Equipment obsolete? Perhaps the "market" thinks so, however I can still develop and deploy solutions that run even on the latest hardware without having to go to it.

Twisted world? Yup. Just for the record, you do NOT have to stick with the "upgrade train" that the market wants to put you in.
