    Mind explaining what my pc is worth today?


    Apologies if this thread would be better suited for "pc-custom-builds-overclocking" but I wasn't sure that would be the most appropriate home for my topic.

    Mind explaining what my pc is worth today?-current-pc.png

    hello and thank you for taking a look at my thread. I purchased my laptop notebook pc in 2016. The most resource intensive programs I use are Second Life and Zoom as a distant second. My habits haven't changed and i happy with my pc's performance.

    Its been 7 years now and I have some spare change so i am considering something new. Please see attached image for my current rig that I spent just under $2,000 for tax included in 2016

    What would I spend today for something comparable to my current notebook? And would starting from scratch and dropping 2K get me something insanely better graphics wise and make my experience dramatically better?

    the point of this thread is not to ask you to shop or build a pc for me, unless of course you wish to. I am simply trying to get a feeling for the market these days when someone has 2K to spend but really doesn't know if they need to spend that much.

    Thanks!

    All computers depreciate right after you buy them.
    No different than an auto.

    I always buy at the higher end (of specs) so the system by default will last me for at least 5 years.

    The question should be - Does your system do what you wish?

    HTH,

    yes it absolutely does what I wish. I suppose I wouldn't mind being able to have even better performance in Second Life. But im not sure $2,000 today will get deliver at least twice the machine i currently have

    You can usually upgrade various components that might help, such as a new GPU, but not always.

    It's a laptop?

    Then your options are few to none. Check with your vendor.
