When what you need is real computing power but what you want is not to totally destroy your fragile bank account, your options have traditionally been fairly limited. Too often it’s either a matter of paying more than you want or getting less than you need—and, sadly, sometimes it’s both.
Since early man first walked upright and into his local electronics boutique, good tech has been expensive, while inexpensive tech has seldom been good. Thankfully, we’ve arrived at a new era.
