Spoken like a true salesman
Selling an Eskimo a refrigerator
Yes Yanche I know the server was overkill, just a bit a sarcasm
The server sarcasm was followed by this sage advice...
Expect to pay about $1100 at your local shop and you will not be disappointed.
Spend $500 at the big box store every 3 years.
Remember I was advocating for the repair of the old box.
At 5 years the computer was due for replacement.
$500 well spent for the refurbished box.
Just make sure to image that drive on a regular basis along with daily data backups.
That program will lessen any viral impact.
