How times have changed

Early this morning I started work on a couple of projects I had to complete.

Two years ago (Windows Vista days?) this would usually  involve atleast 1 or 2 software (system?) restarts throughout the day to clear the memory (make everything fast again!)

Today I was pleasantly surprised that by 7:30pm my laptop was still running lag-free in top top condition. Now my laptop specs are slightly old now, but are still above the average consumer laptop spec
