I am interested to hear of an example for your point though. What software changes or standards have come about in recent years that have made older computers completely worthless/obsolete?
I honestly can not think of a point either, I was going to respond and say the new programs that are coming out with intel, then i realized that they are universal, sure they won't work on a G3 but those are really old, I could get them working on my quad no problem. So I guess I don't know a point to his response either, but I guess me clicking on the on the reply button means I thought I knew the answer and then went to think about it, and didn't.

EDIT: I thought of one a few seconds later (after I moved from my desk to my bed lol): Bootcamp, but currently the only one I can think of.

The fact that there are people out there happily running the latest version of OSX on 5 year old Clamshell iBooks and iMacs tells me that not too much has changed.

Not really, Bootcamp has not made your Quad old or obselete by any means.
