"configure brand new PCs to your liking?"

All your questions seem like overkill - then again, I'm AR so take no offense. My current work laptop is pushing 6 years, no reformats. But it's mainly used for work - no games, random s/w, silly tests, etc.

Over the past few years, I have been migrating to virtual machines. The Xp one I have has been in use for over 10 years. Rock solid. The beauty of VMs is that you just don't give a flying elephant about images or backups. It's a control C/control V to an external drive and you go get a beer.

Scripts, esp powershell? ewwwww.
