The latest fad in computing seems to arise with each issue of InfoWorld or PC Week. While the ongoing cycle is endless, there is a sweet spot balancing between the latest CPU and tolerating a 486 computer. Carry a piece too long and you will find both service times up with spare parts down. Productivity on equipment that is too old is not productive time as well.
When considering equipment purchases, plan for the ability to upgrade. For example if you only need one CPU in a server, get a server with the ability to add a second processor at a later date. When prices come down on that really fast and expensive processor, you can easily add the second CPU, if you thought of that when selecting the server at the time of purchase.
