So far this one has lasted 12 years. It can't play most of the new software out there but I get by on it.

I don't think anyones laptop would be able to last that long, funtioning is one thing. Being able to keep up with new games and applications is another thing. I've have my laptop for about 3 years and it's fine but recently games have forced me to upgrade my ram to play :(

My desktop on the other hand has a 980ti in it and a i7 6700k 30gbs or ram...... there is nothing i can't do on this monster but i'v only had it for a week.

The only computer that I've owned that has completely broke was my first and it lasted 6 years until it started leaking acid on the motherboard. None of my other computers have broken (3 PCs and 2 laptops).

My current desktop/gaming rig's been going strong since 2009 although it underwent a near complete rebuild a few months ago (finishing it up later this month with the case being replaced and another HDD). The only thing that still dates from around 2009 are 2 of the hard drives.

There's this 15 year old Compaq desktop i don't use often that's somehow defied all odds and still works and a 10 year old HP desktop that's still clinging to life. I'm rather bad with laptops since they tend to not live for more than 5 years fully functional.

I always build my own computers, so I build them to last.

I usually end up replacing them before they fail, though my old desktop I built in 2010 still working fine. I've had my laptop for about 3 years now, though I did upgrade the ram to 16GB and the harddrive to a Samsung 840 Evo Pro. My current desktop is barely two years old.

My laptop almost died a few months back (the hard drive broke) but thankfully, we were able to get a new one... Even tho I lost everything from the old hard drive

Still have a Sony vaio laptop going on 7 years, still using it, but it's on its last leg. Then I just recently bought a Dell inspirion, it's pretty fast, I7, so we're good to go.

If i had a desktop, those things literally last for life, but for my lifestyle I'm always moving around wherever I need to work on shit.

My current laptop is an HP G7 from 2012.

My current Netbook is an HP Mini-311 from 2013.


I gave my Compaq workstation XP to my neighbors son when I moved last august.
The damn thing just keeps working. No upgrades.


I still have my original laptop a Compaq notebook using Win311.
Its about the size of a 7"pad.
