I can hardly wait to invest in a new computer. Though my current machine has served me well these past five years – and though it is still in many ways superior to even a number of newer alternatives – I am looking forward enormously to the upgrade. Five years later, I will be doubling my computing cores (with faster cores, to boot), octupling my RAM (with higher throughput), quadrupling my total storage, and adding an SSD with all the speed improvements that promises.

In short, I’ll be flying. It’s going to be fun to push the machine and see just how far it will go and still perform well.
