Tech Friday: How important is an upgradable computer anymore?

Posted By on April 6, 2018

Since my desktop computer has always been an Apple Macintosh (too many to count since the Mac SE), it is interesting how the trend has changed. In those early days, having something upgradeable was a big deal, but nowadays who really does their own upgrades?


A bit less than three in a hundred users even installed RAM on their own, and on top of that, about six in a hundred users paid somebody else to do it. So, rounding up, one in 10 users of the total user base between 1998 and 2010 did their own upgrades.

  1. lacking in consistency, constancy, or visible order, disconnected; fitful: desultory conversation.
