My System Specs

Default

I guess it's my robotics background of building something for 9 months to watch it get ripped to pieces in 3 minutes, but I haven't had any emotional attachment to any device beyond the frustration of having to get a new one when what I was using was still valid. That was especially so in the last few months where I've had four computing devices (1 motherboard/PSU, 2 laptops, and 1 tablet) render themselves useless through various means.

I have to agree with you on laptops though. I really preferred the 2007-2009 designs to what's coming out now. It's even worse now that each company tries to cram tablet-ish features (or cosmetics that detract from features) for Windows 8.
