I have just received a new laptop purchased at Best Buy. My new signature spells out its specs. I needed Windows 8 because a class I am taking uses Excel 2013, and that requires Windows 7 or 8 only.
My question concerns my aging Windows XP desktop. It is a single-core AMD Athlon 2800 with 2GB of RAM, a 300GB and a 2TB HDD, a GeForce 6200, a SB Live! soundcard, and a 23" Viewsonic TN monitor. Should I replace this old desktop with just the notebook, or should I seek/build a replacement desktop within the next three months?
Thank you in advance for your solutions.
