Just downloaded Opera 7.52 and will be installing it as soon as I post this. Upgraded my Eudora to 6.1.2 this afternoon. It never ends.
The only thing I haven't upgraded in a while is my hardware, though my options are limited with my laptop, a five year old Thinkpad. The RAM is maxed out, it doesn't even have USB. I wiped it a couple years ago and installed w2k, only because there was no hope of running XP. I can see the end of the road approaching fast.
So, do I save my pennies until I can buy a new laptop with all the bells and whistles, to try a future-proof my self as much as possible. Or maybe a desktop that I'll be able to upgrade to keep up to date for longer. Or do I buy a reasonably specced 2nd-hand laptop and then soldier on for another couple years until that is practically obsolete and I find myself in the same boat?
