What is the life span of a laptop?

lukkucairi 11-10-2009 10:17 PM

5 years, or til the cat knocks it off the kitchen table, whichever comes first.

Hyakujo's Fox 11-10-2009 11:32 PM

my last laptop got taken out by a glass of red, oh the humanity!

Peregrine 11-10-2009 11:47 PM

My mom got a 486 laptop from her former employer during the Pentium III era. Probably around 97/98, or so; I was in university at the time. So it was old even then. Ran Windows 3.11. Gave it away 2 years ago, and it still worked.

You can't kill a 486. Those fvckers were resilient.

Bman 11-11-2009 02:32 AM

Laptops never really die, they just become obsolete.

EDIT: ...or coasters, whichever comes first.

trisherina 11-11-2009 02:59 AM

2 years.

Odbe 11-11-2009 03:40 AM

A day longer than its warranty.

2 years is when you buy the replacement out of frustration. 5 years is when the HDD dies :p

I have a 7 year old Dell shelved between old vinyl records and about 4 years' worth of handwritten dream diaries in the spare bedroom. It still boots if you hold your breath and squint at it just right. I'm almost sure I can't remember the password any more, though.

...and no, we don't own a cat ;)

Permanent Fatal Errors, A Semi-Ballade
for Lew Grossberger

The laptop on my table here today,
As elegant and vanishingly small
As any warranty that salesmen say
Is unimplied if unexpressed, seems all
And more than anyone could ask if they
Could get all that they wanted to install --
But software jargon holds no greater terrors
Than this brief message: "Permanent Fatal Errors".

No keyboard stroke produces any play;
No mouse-click gives some give -- the letters loll
Unmoving and unmoved as teens who lay
Around with chores to do; the words enthrall
With primitive attractiveness, the way
An accident slows traffic to a crawl,
For software jargon holds no greater terrors
Than this brief message: "Permanent Fatal Errors".

And as I sit here, staring at the wall
While trying to remember how to pray
Or who among my friends if I should call
Might offer something more than “****in’ A!
You’re screwed like Adam was after the Fall”
I feel my final nerve begin to fray:
The software jargon holds no greater terrors
Than this brief message: "Permanent Fatal Errors".


Lew! The portents pile up to appall
And hope for help has faded into gray --
This software jargon holds no greater terrors
Than this brief message: "Permanent Fatal Errors".

topcat 11-11-2009 01:47 PM

^^^that is one long ass answer

Stephi_B 11-11-2009 01:58 PM

I don't have a fukken laptop! Ha! :mad: (now you really know all my blackest secrets :p)

I wait for a smaller thing, like a cube with round edges maybe, that is unkaputtbar, at least within my lifespan :D

madasacutsnake 11-11-2009 06:51 PM

I've got one of those dinky little things that fits in my handbag and on an airline fold down table if Qantas should ever change its policy on using electrical gear on board. I hope it lasts forever.

brightpearl 11-12-2009 12:03 PM

new q:

How many messages in your spam folder? Bonus points for subject lines that sound interesting.

I have been remiss of late and have accumulated 37, and there is one from a game my son plays, Adventure Quest, which promises a Harvest Festival battle with a Velocigobbler.

MoJoRiSin 11-12-2009 12:48 PM

i have recently switched my email so my answer is none

12"razormix 11-12-2009 01:42 PM

zero 11-12-2009 03:31 PM

I do not care at all about the electronic detritus of my online life - it accumulates like fallen leaves, and I leave it to mulch:

on facebook:
516 unread messages
184 updates
99 notifications

on gmail:
945 spam
345 unread in inbox
2 drafts

on yahoo:
223 spam
8276 unread in inbox
3 drafts

on bulletin.zefrank:
all boxes: 0 unread, 0 spam :D

xfox 11-12-2009 06:54 PM

good question. Very little actually.

Peregrine 11-12-2009 07:30 PM

I don't even pay attention anymore. i just scan the addresses, and make sure nothing got sent there accidentally, and then empty it.

But let's check my Boxbe account, and see what's in there...

72 in the past month.

The trend lately has been "Facebook updated account agreement" and "Facebook Password Reset Confirmation" which are obviously phishing scams

There's one guy who laments that he gave me shelter.

"And they fastened it down with a pin" - no idea what that's about

"Bathed in light" - what?

"Iswhen beneath the sod"

"I saw that I was in my own bed" - um... that's nice.

"Special Teacher Thank you special teacher" - you're welcome.

"Do you think I'm stupid?" - Yes.

"Zipper-tearing supplement!" - I don't want to know.

That's all my interesting spam. Nothing else but online degrees.

Hyakujo's Fox 11-12-2009 10:35 PM

I think I've got 2 this year.

brightpearl 11-12-2009 10:37 PM


What's your secret?!?!?

Hyakujo's Fox 11-12-2009 10:42 PM

I didn't know I had one.

Marcus Bales 11-14-2009 12:20 PM

Didn't know you had one WHAT?
