My computer at home is  OCT 16 1999

My computer at home is a 200 MHz Pentium Pro with 128 Megs of RAM. It's almost three years old. Time to upgrade, right? Not really. It's still chugging along, doing what I want it to do. Sure, it's a bit slower than my 550 MHz PIII at work, but it's not that much slower. Photoshop runs just fine and I can use multiple apps at the same time without a problem. The reason I don't have to upgrade is that the requirements of today's software (excluding games) has not kept pace with the hardware....why do I need today's speed and power when yesterday's cheaper speed and power is more than sufficient.
