I normally buy things for what I use them for. Yea, it would be cool to have the top of the line device every time, but if I am not going to fully utilize the device and all its features, then its a waste of money IMO. Why I still use a 4 year old laptop. I dont game on it, do image/vid processing. Just internet, email, and documents.
I used to have a boxy Lenovo T61 laptop. Wasnt much to look at, but worked great and did what I needed it to do.
Agreed, why my secondary computer is an Athlon XP 3000 with Linux on it, laptop is I think 5-6 years old, desktop is newer but I game and graphics on it.
Most people use Cells for only phone calls, text message, and small % browse for short periods of time, but my free LG Rumor Touch can do that also ( think it even does email, never used it for that or care). Otherwise I have a desktop/laptop/tablet that can do it with a bigger screen, why use a small screen ( even with android phones, IMO the screen is just to small for regular browsing other then " I need to look this up now " )
