My current desktop is 8 years old running XP with an AMD X2 4800 with 2GB RAM I think the video card is a GTX ??? with 512 RAM

Anyhow, I don't game at all but I do a lot of remote support work, check e-mails, surf web, but run a good number of virtural machines for Server 2008.

My question is with the new processor coming out soon, do I wait or get something now.

I have an XPS 15.6 laptop with 8GB of RAM but I just prefere a desktop for the remote work. Any thoughts on ALL-In-Ones? Personally I am not a big fan but they seem to becoming popular.

Does your current computer run ok? Do the applications seem slow or take too long to load? Are there any programs that you can't run but would like to?

If you answer yes then pull the trigger on a new one, otherwise wait.

Let's put it this way, for a Windows XP machine that is 8 years old it runs fine not too slow but not nearly as fast as I would like. I guess I will wait then. I can wait a few months before the new chipset comes out.
