why do computers slow down over time?
my laptop is from 2009 and it's getting so fucking slow.
it was much faster brand new and im not doing anything other than the most basic of tasks
is it a harddrive issue or an OS issue? or both?
Small files build up over time thus causing reads to take longer.
Applications become more intensive as stronger components that can handle it are released.
Your HDD is getting errors.
I need 4bay NAS server for home, max 350$.
Except the fact that they have MUCH less power draw and properly built.
Comparing NAS builds is like comparing a raspberry pi-powered android smartphone with a 1Ah battery with a clamped on touchscreen in a shitty 3d printed case to an actual smartphone.
How good is it?

When will it fucking end? I just want a good smart phone with a keyboard and directional button.
I can't help but wonder how people with big sausage fingers manage at all....
