I run Xactimate which is a resource hog and am looking to upgrade. after pricing an SSD and 8 gigs of ram am wondering if its worth putting the money into this machine or start looking for a replacement. current stock setup on fresh reload with all the fat trimmed still locks up running the software. Is it worth spending the money on this machine? have not been keeping up with technology to know if its any better then where i am currently at. guess the question is... upgrade the hardware and wait another year, or sell the machine and combine that with the extra money to get something new.
