Thanks FMA...I'm the opposite, I HATE changing machines, I had my last one for probably 5 to 7 years. Only reason I moved to a newish machine (replaced with a rebuilt T430) is because I dropped it one too many times and killed the disc drive.

I thought about less drive space, but it's my understanding from other forums that it's hard to install aftermarket drives....and I already know 1TB isn't enough. And I hate cloud storage, I much prefer to keep my 'stuff' close to home.

So, it sounds like $2k for a new midlevel laptop is not out of the realm. Wow.
