How often do you plan to buy a new computer? Do you wait until the last minute and find that you need something right away? I did this the last time I needed a computer. It wasn't completely dead, but I pretty much had to buy something within a few weeks. Then, I got my Mac. That was 2.5 years ago and I love this baby. I am curious if you buy a computer every few years, or try to upgrade every 5 years, etc.
