Late last year I had the misfortune of having my desktop replacement laptop stolen when my car was burgled. A generation old, the laptop was still doing yeoman duty and had recently been upgraded with 500 GB hard drive. The system was more than adequate to run Windows and the 1900 x 1200 17″ display was the most compelling reason I hadn't replaced the unit. But I no longer had the option of not moving on to something else.
But in the years since I originally purchased that laptop, my usage patterns had changed significantly.
