My MP(see signature) has been working great for 3years, been on 24/7 for most of the time with 8cpus avg around ~20%. I use it for work so I have loved the power it gave me which at that time had amazing value . But time passes and I still use my comp for work and some extra horsepower from 2011 would be nice. But the current lineup seems like nothing special compared to what I have, like the time to migrate would cost me more hours than the gain by perfomance. I am finding me looking at Sandy Bridge PCs(work is in windows) which might not have the # of cores at least have the # of hertz. What's your upgrade plan?
