A computer has a limited lifetime. There are components on
the motherboard that have a rated lifetime of about 3 years
if the computer is left on constantly.
Where do you get this crsp from?
Older computers are
far worse in this regard than newer ones,
Tell that to the 8088 board pulled from the dirt of a demolished garage,
cleaned it up and powered it up. Worked and all 640k soldered memory was
but even then,
the state of the art changes fast enough that a 4 year old
PC may not run modern apps or games.
what exactly is 'modern'? 'Games' can be 'played' maybe you won't see the
detail, however it still can be played. If it is a new release, the 'gamer'
who is most likely the consumer of these, knows what system he needs.
Along with that,
the vendors cannot afford to keep parts in stock that would
match your hardware.
They are forced to keep up with
the new technology if they want to stay in business.
yeah and toss out all those 'olden day' tech parts to make room
old technology is like buying a can of beans from the
grocery store .. eating the beans .. and then taking the
can back for a refill. May be logical .. just wrong headed.
Let me guess this is another "worm post"...you sir are
............misguided.....to put it nicely
