My daughter recently received a new computer. She’s been using an old desktop for a few years, and it was time to upgrade her to the machine she will use through college.
In our house, I’m generally the one who gets the upgrades, and then the machines get shuffled. Since I am a developer, I have certain specs about what I need to have – and they are typically not served by your average computer.
My daughter got to learn this as we debated the various configurations. In the end, she ended up with maxed out memory, a big hard drive, and a decent video card.
She’s very excited about this.
And so the great computer shuffle starts.
My husband has a desktop he purchased while he was in DC that is terrible. No memory, no good guts, no hard drive space. It’s slower than molasses in a Green Bay January.
So the question is, does he get his old desktop back (which my daughter was using)? Or does he get my old laptop?
It will be interesting to see how this all shakes out.
