You’re right on, brother.
I stopped worrying about my CPUs performance at 1.0GHz as well. There are many other parts of my notebook that I would much rather have upgraded than my CPU. To be honest, who cares if I don’t have the latest and greatest? If your PC suits your needs, there is no reason to go out and spend another $3000 on the best notebook around. Donate that money to a charity organization of some sort, instead.
I mean, did you hear about the IBM 5.0GHz processors? My goodness, 1.8GHz runs everything I’ll need to run for a long time – even big games.
I just think it’s time for people to start thinking more on what they need…no want.
Am I a really weird 13-year-old or do people agree with me?
Oh well, agree with me or not, I don’t need to latest and greatest --- I may want it, though.
