With maintenance almost any machine lasts that long. Seems a very easy spec. Was there more?
I'm purchasing a desktop computer for my work and I often use statistics and graphing software. I'm also moving into ArcGIS. What are the minimum specs you'd recommend for the system? CPU, RAM, video etc? I am currently looking at Dell Precision workstations but I'm open to other ideas, and I'd like to keep the price below 2500.
