My main reason for going so overkill on the processor, is that they're not the kind of people that will be updating anytime soon. The E2020 program that they are enrolled in requires no other educational software. I wanted to use such a high level processor to ensure that it will be relevant for an extended time. Do you think this is a poor decision?
