Because it's sales that sell the product that make the company money isn't it? The fact that it takes developers longer to write the thing in the first place when short of resources doesn't enter the managers minds. 4 years ago I was given a 486 to work on, I nearly brought my 2 year old laptop to work as it was better, I left after 9 months.

I'm so glad I work where I do now. 4GB RAM, 3Ghz Core 2 Duo, 64bit OS & ~0.5TB HD space!
