One of the biggest problems with PC sales is the low need for new machines. This summer my main desktop will be 3 years old.

I agree totally. The machine I'm using right now is about 5 years old, running XP. I sold off my most powerful machine last year (Quad core, multiple HDDs and lashings of RAM), simply because I didn't need it. Since then I've retired from IT work apart from some pro bono for local charities.

On my last contract I was using Win 7 and it was pretty usable. I've looked at Win 8, shuddered  and decided to go Linux and or Android for all my personal use. This machine will be adequate to handle all my database development and Web work.
