While people used to upgrade their computers every three years or so, that’s being stretched longer and longer. Some suggest that, eventually, it’ll reach a standard cycle time of approximately 8 years. In the meantime, computer makers are looking to come up with new reasons why users should upgrade – and while it’s convincing some people, it’s unlikely to lead to real computer sales boom.
