How do you take care of your computer? Do you put oil on the CPU? Sharpen the fan blades? Paint the keys on the keyboard when the color fades? Or do you just go and buy a new computer?
I clean the CPU heating devices when they don't work properly. I clean the fans and I put oil on them when they get noisy. A faded keyboard doesn't bother me. I take care of my computer, I've thermal indicator and memory status always in the status bar, and I get angry when a web page overheat the CPU. I never "just go and buy", consumerism never really got me.
