IMO, starting a dozen years or so back, we have entered a sort of 'hardware plateau' where decent hardware coupled with SSDs, and faster broadband internet has been good enough for most. Combine that with the extremely low failure rate for SSDs and people find that their 10-12 y/o systems still get the job done.

The plateau ended a few years ago when mainstream desktop core counts stopped being capped at 4. The only reason I haven't replaced my 2014 CPU/mobo yet is that I'm waiting for AMDs next generation platform later this year. (For Intel I wouldn't bother, they cycle sockets every 2 years so there's no point; but AMD's 4ish year lifecycle is long enough to offer compatible parts that are worthwhile upgrades.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
