Computers Becoming Obsolete Quickly Is Passé

  Hello PC shopper land, I am Dave, your friendly neighborhood PC sales exec. I wanted to quickly go over a common misconception (or rather, common knowledge turned myth) when buying a PC from a high end builder like us. My fellow sales execs and I often hear “I don’t want my PC to be obsolete in 2 years” or even the self-defeating “I know this will be obsolete 6 months from now” when talking to customers.
