I had to stop reading when you mentioned 16 gb of ram on a
machine for a school setting.
You wouldn't touch a machine that is a year old is fine, but
please stop spouting the below as facts when it is your opinion
and has absolutely nothing to do with the discussion at hand. Not
everyone has the finances to buy the best of the best and what is
quote on quote yucky for you may suffice for someone else. My
surface book is coming up on 4 years old and there is absolutely
nothing wrong with its performance. A reasonable processor paired
with, perhaps, slightly above average ram (8 gb, for instance)
with a sufficient amount of storage. In a school environment,
there is, unless video editing is involved, no need for a high end
graphics card, no need for 32 gb of ram and no need for something
that is not refurbished. I would recommend new if at all possible,
but understand that some may not be able to afford that and that
is completely fine.

Actually I would not let even that student touch
anything over a year old. I don't care if it still works.
Many companies don't support let's say a 7 year old machine
the school might be giving to their students. If the school
can afford it let them buy refirbs that are a year old if
that is even possible as long as they have 8 or 16 gigs of
ram and the students can use them for class but anything
over a year old at least in terms of school settings is
yucky to me.
I know a family member who is at their office
still using windows I think it's 7. They refuse to upgrade
the their machines are 10 years old, but what would you
expect from most people who don't really care about this
If I could afford it I would replace my
computers every year or 2 even though they still work. It's
staying up to date with technology and going with the best
if you can, at least to me.

It's not that your needs are wrong, but they're
utterly irrelevant to what I've seen as the broader point of
this whole topic.

great deal of intelligence can be invested in
ignorance when the need for illusion is deep.
