Q: Does it costs less money to buy a less expensive PC more often or a more expensive PC less often?

Q: which is better for stewardship of the earth we have been given to manage? the less expensive or more expensive route?

this is for people who want to save costs. here you can find out just how long to time things if you want to do some planning. this can come in handy for businesses too.

if you didn't know, a desktop costs less to maintain, and it lasts at least 3x longer than a laptop with parts replacement that you can do possibly yourself (but don't skimp on the power supply).
