Spyware Makes Computers Disposable

The New York Times has an article detailing how spyware has started to make many users consider simply purchasing a new computer, rather than attempt to repair an older system.

The idea of computers becoming disposable isn’t really that surprising when you consider that the average cost for professional spyware removal service weighs in at $120. Compared to the $500 price tag many retailers are advertising cheap computers for, many consumers are simply opting to upgrade into a faster machine rather than try and have their existing hardware repaired.
