    Seriously? How can they do that?!

    Edit: 63% downloaded on Lappy and Desktop should be installed by now. Guess I'll go look.
    Is your RAM maxed out?

    No, but it only has 4GB RAM. If I could put 8 in it, that would at least speed it up.

    Just as HP forces us to buy new printers every time we add a new OS, they have now decided that if we want a larger/faster hard drive and/or more RAM, we have to buy a new computer.

    Tim the Computer guy told me it would cost $60 or $70 just to install the SSD. That would mean I'd pay in the neighborhood of $140 to speed things up. May as well buy a new computer that will let me do what I need to do.

    If anything, it's gotten worse. Here's the other thread I accidentally started.
