In my house we buy a new one when the old one basically dies...But I have my own laptop now that is almost 2 years old...although I really really want a new one. I'm thinking of taking out a bigger loan (for my school tuition) so that I can also buy a new, much better laptop.

I dont buy new computers. scince i built my pc, i just replace parts so its up to date... much more efficient than buying a new prebuilt every 5 years. I have had my Ibook for like 6 or 7 years now though...

I only buy upgrades when I need it since I am not a gamer I only need to have a computer capable of running my apps and right now I have 2 computers running 24/7 with APS power backup. Main pc uses dual monitor and the secondary pc uses one of the monitor when I turn on my KVM switch. If I want to play games, I just use my laptop.

I've had my laptop for just a little over a year now. My last computer lasted for about 3-4 years.
Posted 4/10/08
every 5 years i guess

I upgrade to the latest maxed-out Macbook Pro every 4-6months, and Macpro desktop every year.

Having said that, I only do it as i need it for my work, "time is money" as they say and when it comes to 3D design and High end rendering I need all the power i can get from my computer.

It obviously helps that I earn a decent salary too lol

Wow so thats your actual computer in your avatar thats real impressive.

On topic: I just got a new hp with a masive amount of specs 14 days ago. I kept my old computer alive for seven years and finaly got a new one. I plan on keeping my new one for just as long and it has good room for expansion.

I bought my Alienware in 2003 or so, and I just continually upgrade. I don't play any computer games anymore though so thinking of slowing that down.
