I had a 2.8ghz for like over 5 years, never needed more power. I just upgraded to a 3 core AMD and it's way more power than I need. My wife has the same machine but with an SSD drive and I can't imagine needing more desktop horsepower in the next decade. There's just nothing at the desktop level that we do that uses horsepower.
lol. I do web stuff and business stuff. No video editing. I got an upgrade this year mainly because I was concerned the machine was going to be so old that it would die on me one day.
Same with my servers - I think they're like 7 years old. Should replace them soon, but my web pages serve up just fine. And I've got complete duplicate hardware offsite. Hard to justify the time and expense of an upgrade.
at any given time, im running 2 mail clients, 2 different versions of web browsers, FTP client, dreamweaver, skype, winamp,etc etc etc all that stuff starts to add up....and its all daily usage.
heck i've got my own house wired with gigabit ethernet.... wifi is for people watching laughing cats on youtube.
Really? I never thought of Wifi speed as the week link in most systems. You must have a mighty fast internet connection at home. I've only 25 Mbps.

I have no problems with my wifi set up. It works flawlessly. I don't find my LAN bandwidth to be the limiting factor at all,
