I see many posts asking the resale value of Macs/accessories/PCs to finance the next computer purchase. It seems those people are counting on current gear for the future purchase. For myself, I consider computer purchase as consumable items. I use it up (or, not use it up, for that matter) and move on to the new one if I needs one, without even thinking about selling the old computer. I consider the money I spend on the computer as a "done deal" which is not to be recovered in a meaningful way. Also, I only buy new ones only. Maybe I should change this attitude (but for now I have been doing this as my finance has allowed). Do you count on your current gear to finance your future purchase?
