I was reading this comment about a person that tried to play this simple free online game. The issue was it ran a little slow due to the age of his computer. Because of that one game alone he was thinking of buying a new computer. This isnâ€™t a person that plays games a lot too as for the most part it is for productivity applications where everything works fine for him.
For myself the only way I would immediately purchase a new replacement is if the current item I had was completely broken/unusable. Other than that, I usually need to find three big faults in these types of items of me to justify a purchase such as a new computer. Example, it would have to run modern day software very slow, there is a lack of disc space and it is making say a lot of noise cause the parts are getting old.
Some may say that is a bit too much, but for most items itâ€™s all about getting the max life of the product for what you paid Iâ€™d say. Otherwise itâ€™s no different than say throwing away half of the groceries you buy because you simply want to try something sweeter as opposed to something being wrong with it.
