    No. I am not running on old hardware. The computer is brand new. It came preloaded with Windows 8.1. Then, shortly after I got it, the 8.1 Update came out.

    EDIT: Anyway you've got about 3000 days so if you can start saving lets say $0.20 a day you'll be OK (Assuming you can get a new PC for $600 in the year 2023 of course)
