New Photo Editing Computer for Adobe Lightroom + Photoshop

I need a new computer for doing my photo editing with!

Over the course of the next couple of weeks, I'll be posting about the "new" computer that I have just bought, and at the end of it all I'll post a series of benchmarks comparing three different computers. Sadly, none of them are the latest model, not even the "new" one.  It's new to to me, but it's not new.

I've had the same computer, a Toshiba Qosmio, for approximately 7 years, maybe 8 years, and it's come to the point where editing photos is so slow it hurts. I was given another computer, an aged Dell Optiplex as a tie over machine which has improved things, but it's still not giving me enough oomph.

Why have I not bought a new computer already?

Good question.
