After spending close to a decade developing websites that had to work in IE6, the very name Internet Explorer causes my heart to start racing, my fists to clench involuntarily, and a sudden urge to punch something. Oh, the thousands of hours I spent screaming at that POS as I watched it puke out some incomprehensible interpretation of my carefully crafted sytlesheets, dooming me to the torturous hell of browser hacks and removal of features. I really could are less how great IE11 is or what it looks like, I simply cannot bring myself to ever voluntarily use that browser ever again.
I passed my Q6600 to my wife's computer. She somehow manages to get all her work and gaming done with no complaints on that "obsolete" CPU.
Agreed. I also have an i7 Ivy and have zero complaints about performance. With 16GB of RAM and an SSD drive, I leave everything I use on a regular basis open all the time (Photoshop, Steam, Aptana, iTunes, and Firefox with numerous tabs opened). I just works, with no lag or hiccups.
