I'm a little confused here... You want us to tell you how long you have until this computer goes obselete? Well... at the present moment, and, if technology doesn't just upgrade like no other in the next few months, I'd say a couple of years, maye 2-4, depending on advancements... so yeah. If you're asking how long it will take to build the computer, it takes around 1 hour to 2 hours, depending on experience and ease of installation...

Macbook Pro and Logitech z5500s. All you really need.
