I can do virtualization, albeit only for testing purposes.

e.g. The Web Conferencing server I used on my remote collaboration presentation was running on a virtual on that same computer.

Actually I've been using virtualization for a couple of years now on that computer.

If I eventually upgrade it it will be because:
A) I have some extra cash to burn. (After having paid debts and taken holidays)
B) I have a professional need for a faster computer.
C) The current computer dies (I replaced the mobo for $60 less than 2 years ago and added a faster video card for $25)
