I have been the forever upgrader, always needing the latest and greatest Mac hardware. Every new imac release would find me packing up my 10 month old machine and selling it off for a few hundred less than paid. Purchasing the latest. Reselling the next year. It was a perpetual spiral that I was quite honestly comfortable with. Never left me wanting. But as I inch closer to 40yrs old something hit me this week that I've never really even considered until now. Age is bringing a sense of contentment. The proof in that was my purchase of Applecare for my 2011 imac and plans to keep it for at least two more years. Sorry if this story bores you but I was just curious how many other gotta have a new one every year addicts are out there and have seen their buying habits mature like mine seem to be doing. I can't honestly say it feels great because it is kinda leaving a void in me. I keep watching the forums for news of Ivy Bridge machines but know that I will not be buying. Like losing a good friend. This transistion to smart consumer is strangely awkward but I feel necessary.
