one needs more RAM, etc.

One of the reasons I am extremely cautious about buying a PC these days. Doubly so when it comes to laptops.

Also need to be careful because a lot of name-brand PCs have their components soldered into the mainboard now (specifically batteries, RAM, and storage drives), making upgrades / replacements impossible. Caveat emptor applies. 

I definitely caution people to buy for future needs, and not current needs.---------------------------------------------------
