Being a subjective term ... 2 years is about as long as I personally want to keep a rig around ... money allowing of course. Some times I'll stretch it to 3 years before I upgrade (ACK!!!!) ...

 

Otherwise, I don't get phone calls so I'm still using a Samsung Note ver. 1 ... which works fine as a router, still ... (main use of my phone) ...

I've finally ditched my last apple item (mid 2011 iMac) and gone fully back to PC...

Okay, so - it is purely stock, but I have got an HP ENVY 700-311na and a Dell U2713HM monitor, and couldn't be happier - if nothing else, when the stock gear gets a bit long in the tooth, I can finally upgrade individual components again, not need to upgrade the whole system...

Surprised at how adept the stock R9 270 card is, runs at 2560x1440 perfectly fine - was sceptical, having read reviews re frame rates etc - but, all looks good to me smily_headphones1.gif

To anyone interested .. I did some tests this weekend comparing my new 980 cards with my traditional 670's ... posted some comments to overclock.net ... YMMV:

I still have my mid 2010 MBP 13" for school. Gave it new life half a year ago with a new Samsung EVO 840 128GB and an upgrade to 8GB of RAM. Quite nice although SATA 2 limits it. I forgot to check to make sure that the mobo supported SATA 3......so I bought an 840 Evo. If I had known, I would have saved a bit more money on say a PNY, or MX100

 

 

Nice, having a pre-built cheaply upgrading it is also quite a plan that some users can embark on. Any reason you didn't voyage into the realm of build a pc?
