2.Upgrade First
If you want to replace your old computer with new one first give a thought to upgrade.
I've seen many people who bought a new computer when their old PC became very slow.
Instead try to increase RAM/Graphics card and clean up the unwanted softwares from your system.
Now check your system performance. If you are not satisfied then go for your new PC.
You can save in this area.

Instead of calling your friends over mobile, you can use the Chat facility provided by many providers.
Yahoo chat, Google Chat & Facebook chat will always allow you to contact with your friends and at the same time you can cut down your mobile bill.

If you have to attend any conference, first check if Video Conference facility is supported at your end and at the receiver's end. If the support is available you can use Video Conference which looks very professional and at the same will also save lot of time and money spent in travelling.

I have to agree with you, always use the free products and save so much money.
We had our duo core2 2.266, conk out on us and actually my husband built it up it been great to 5 years and cost us $3000.00. Bought another one exactly the same today for $120. Oh boy its amazing how much computers have virtually stayed the same yet cost so much less.And still used our old hard drive.
