  I think you're taking it to an extreme here, though, given the
context. I'm talking about the Pentium-II/233 that was "wow fabulous
wonderful my god check out my new machine!!" three years ago that are
heading to trash bins today.

  There is *NO* reason for this. Those machines are just as
functional today as they were three years ago...but people are
treating them like trash simply because something faster has been
introduced by the vendor!
