how long do lenovo laptops last?

2011-01-19, 21:15 PM

Hello,

I was reading some articles about the lifespan of laptops these days and it said that in general, laptops last 2-3 years only.

I was quite upset by this, since I paid a great deal of money for my W700.

I don't care if my laptop gets outdated, but I think laptops should still work for at least 10 years.

 

Anyway, I was wondering how long your laptops have lasted.

Please post a response saying (1) what laptop you have, and (2) how long have you had it.

 

For me, it's:

W700

1 year no problems

My T23 is from 2001 and is alive. The LCD is showing a pink tint at boot and will probably eventually die on me at some point :smileysad: I wont actually be sad because the system has served me well and after that amount of time and usage........ I can't complain.

 

My T43p will be 6 years old in April this year, still going strong :smileyhappy:

I have a 600X that's dated August 2000.  It still runs fine.

 

I had some older 76x models that were still working up until someone broke into my house and stole them.

I have a Think Pad T43 that still functions, but it is no longer practically useful for me as it does not have the capacity to meet any of my current computing needs.  My oldest useful Thinkpad is now a T60.

 

With reasonable care there is no reason why your W700 should not be physically functional in 10 years time, but that is not the same thing at all as being useful in 10 years time.

Cheers,

I have a Z60m (with the IBM logo on it.) Bought it when IBM was in talks with Lenovo.  Still runs good except for the battery.  I have replaced the battery two times already.  Because of the high price of the battery, i just use the power cord.
