Default Re: Lost in the world of upgrades

Welcome to the world of technology! After most of us built our core 2 quad systems here, the i7 line came out. Man were we pissed. The dual cores should comfortably last you for the next year or so. The quads should hopefully last 3-4, with what you're doing.

If that's the case, why not get the quad? Wouldn't X<$15 save you more than $100 in a while?

Hey guys. Let's chill out. She doesn't want a quad-core so let's not force it on her. For what she does a high-clocked dual-core will be fine for 2 years if not more. Web browsers, media players, etc. have yet to reach the dual-threaded base. She's not a "latest-game-out" gamer so he she won't need a quad for a while. If she got a quad core she'd have that thing for a very long time. The processor industry is increasing at a much steeper rate than the programming industry. There's no way programs will keep up with the multi-core architecture. In a few years she can upgrade to a more efficient processor if need be. For all we know the programming industry could have a break through that would leap them ahead of the processor industry. You never know.

Then Microsoft might actually care about their customers...

Microsoft should put more effort into what they do. Sometimes I get the feeling they just half-ass it to make more money. Like...the way it is...W7 isn't really necessary.

So true. It's just that so many people blindly trust Microsoft, they follow them on a whim.

Alright, this thread has been settled, she likes what she is buying. You guys are just beating a dead horse talking about quad core.

Shut down.
