Thumbs Up | :thumbsup: Nice setup! I suppose it's only natural that we are all (well, most of us) working on hardware that gets better every year.

Personally, I have nothing at all to complain about with an off-the-shelf tower (only upgrade being SSD) connected to twin 27 inch monitors. It's definitely the best system spec-wise I've ever had and best of all, it's the quietest system I've ever had. This is complemented with a 6 y/o laptop also with pretty good specs that I should be able to get another 5-6 years out of.

IMHO, hardware improvements have plateaued to the point that even 10 y/o systems are still 'good enough' for most people. 20 years ago my desktop/laptop replacement cycle was around 2 years and now it's at least 10 years.
