Depends about what. I have been a card-carrying anarcho-syndicalist

but in my mind, change can be a good thing.

Getting a faster Mac was the best thing I did.
I am sure I would like to have one but, a big iMac plus a big screen,
we are talking more than I am willing to spend on the improvement.
Intaglio, now, never wimps out on me, but it crawled and froze
often with both my G3 and G4 computers.
However, change may not necessarily solve your problem!
That was exactly my point: For what I do, which involves a lot of
LaTeX compiling, it’s not worth it: while it’s running, I just
scratch my head trying to figure out my next move and LaTeX is
usually done before I am.
Now if I were involved in stuff that involves the machine running for
a few days or even only a few hours, then I would run to the bank get
a loan to get the fastest mac I could lay my hands on plus another
one for the meantime.
So, depends too.

Don’t plan on changing anything
Ah, now I understand: This was not advice, this was “I don’t plan
on changing anything”
If so, sorry about that.
