The only thing we've needed more speed for in my home and office usage in the last 5+ years was virtualization - clearly a high end need. There's been no new uses in that time that meant a need for new hardware.
huh what? it really depends on what you do.... work with video much? just simple video conversion can take HOURS on old hardware.
even burning DVDs for friends that aren't up with times goes by much faster.
i guess some people actually put their hardware to work and some don't.
