    might, "some of us" might not. Are you in fact using a refurbished machine? I bought mine refurbished.

    •  That would be a great poll to add to this diary (2+ / 0-)

      The device I am tap, tap, tapping on to answer this poll was:

      Bought new, less than 6 months old.

      Bought new, less than 2 years old.

      Bought new, less than 5 years old.

      Bought new more than 5 years ago.

      Bought used, less than 6 months ago.

      and so on.

      For myself, I'm typing on a 10 year old pc that I purchased used from work, and it is about done.  When I replace it, I'll be looking on local craigslist first.

      •  Ditto here. (0+ / 0-)

        My husband says nothing about this machine can be reused except the case.

        CPU?  Useless, too slow - can't be upgraded with current motherboard.

        Memory?  Needs more RAM - unfortunately this requires a new motherboard.

        Graphics?  Gah.  Pathetic.  Can't be upgraded with current motherboard.

        Hard drives?  Slow and outdated.

        Power supply?  Cannibalized from another extinct PC.  Once the motherboard is replaced and upgraded, the power supply will be to small.

        The monitor is a flatscreen LCD.  Hopefully will last longer than the 3-5 years the old CRTs did.

        Show me the POLICY!
