Hardware, Embedded Systems "Each time a new version of Windows is released, many computer users find that their hardware is suddenly outdated. For cash-strapped schools, upgrading to the latest hardware with each major software release is simply impossible.

memory errors, harddisk errors.
Old hardware dies slowly as it attempts to compensate for all the errors that come up as the hardware becomes more broken.
As a user you don't see any of this, but all the re-trying and error correction impacts performance.
