I often complain about my laptop being decrepit. It has so many gotchas that I can’t do anything serious without running into problems or fearing the worst when time is of the essence. Being poor, I keep an eye on the prices and they are usually out of range for me.
Today, I briefly looked at 16GB laptops and to my surprise they were all above $1300CAD (forgot if I added the tax mentally). Well, there are some sub-$1000 but guess what? I see many in the same generation as the laptop I am typing on right now! I could just go and buy myself 2x8GB SODIMMs. Yes, my laptop doesn’t have the silly soldered RAM. Yet, I am running on 4GB LOL.
When I finally get a replacement, it is going to be like magic to me since it will be so much better. But at what cost?
