i think fans rated at around 20,000 hours or couple of years of continual use.

Re: T61p rated FAN LIFE?

I read it somewhere ages ago, i can't find the source. But the rating was only a ball park figure, it could fail as early as 10,000 hours. I mean my T61p at the lab has been on continuously for a year now, but mind you the lab is in a low dust environment at an ambient temperature of 15~20 degrees Celsius.
