I prefer to upgrade my computer than do a complete system replacement. The trading game requires us to have the latest and greatest computers. It's a never ending cycle of upgrading. Personally, I like to put it off as long as possible. Replacing a complete computer system is a pain. You will have to re-install all your software, transfer all your data from your old computer to your new computer, and spend time customizing all your settings again on the new computer.
On the bright side, the good news is computer equipments are tax deductible for all qualified full time traders. Here are some toys for upgrading so you can put off replacing your complete computer system as long as possible.
