A friend is heavily into classic cars; he says a car depreciates
typically until it hits a low at about 13 years, after which its'
value rises. Computers probably do the same pattern although the time
probably varies. The trick is to know when the machine hits bottom and
which will go up from there. (If it climbs slowly, there's no hurry)
