    When do you retire a PSU?

    When the PSU fails I generally retire it. Generally I keep my last three computer builds around. When I retire old rigs (generally 6 years old or more) I hack apart the power supply and modify it to provide DC voltage for electronics projects.

    iPhone Air ( iPhone 6 ) September

    When is a good time to buy a laptop?

    If you get stuck with Vista you may have to use XP compatability mode in Vista to get some of the tools you need to work. I had a problem running wookie, an assembly compiler, in Vista even with compatability mode on it wouldn't work.
