I use a quite different approach but I confess that I enjoy playing Lego with
my computers:

Unless I do a strategic decision (like switching to WinNT or so) I use my
equipment until I feel hampered by it. Then I get some $400 from my bank
account, ride on my bicycle to downtown Nuernberg and get a few computer parts
- a new motherboard, some RAM chips, a CD-ROM drive or what else I feel is
appropriate. Then I update my equipment.

A single component might be sufficient to improve several machines. E.g., 32
MBs of RAM for one machine might set free 8 MBs that I then use to update
another machine from 8 to 16 MBs.

I have not bought a complete box since 1991. I even bought MS-DOS 5 and
Windows 3.1 individually :-)
