Default Re: Would you be satisfied if your computer or device lasted for five years?

does anyone have a computer that hasn't lasted for five years?

I've still got an old desktop (that since moving I've had to stop using due to lack of space) that is over ten years old.

still running windows XP rather well. was fine for what I wanted to use it for. (very light internet browsing, and writing software/programming micro controllers.)

gaming rigs are lucky to last a year or two though

It would also depend on how they are used and how often they get used..

I use my laptop nearly everyday, The occasional day where I will be on it all day, All of my laptops have been ASUS and I love this one, When I get the money I will upgrade to a laptop with a processor in "i" range..

I have AMD Dual Brazos E2 which runs at 1.6ghz, So I can't run really good games but I manage to do some light gaming like sims 2, minecraft/tekkit...
