When it comes to having to replace our computers, many of us put it off for as long as possible. In the meantime, we endure the constant crashing, endless loading screens, and broken keys. The average person holds on to their computer for about four or five years; certainly long enough to develop a pretty close relationship.

Though it's just a piece of technology, after using a computer so long it's hard to just throw it away. Well, it doesn’t have to be that way. Most old computers can be upgraded fairly easily and you can do it your self for a fraction of the cost of a new computer. For about $100 you'll get a faster computer without actually having to get a new computer just from upgrading RAM. Though some people are a bit squeamish about opening up their computer and replacing the RAM themselves, it's a simple and quick procedure and all you need is a screwdriver.
