How long do lenovo laptops last?

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I don't care if my laptop gets outdated, but I think laptops should still work for at least 10 years.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

  • How long has your laptop lasted? please participate

    I thought it would be beneficial to many such as myself who is new to Lenovo & trying to determine which might be best to buy as our first.
    I totally understand that how one cares for their pc can greatly contribute to the longevity of their pc, so keeping that in mind.
    1.  Which laptop(s) (8 years or younger) have you had/do you have?  ThinkPad, IdeaPad, Edge, etc....series & model
    2.  How long did it last &/or still going strong?
    3.  Did you need to take it in for repairs?  If so, at what age did probs arise & what were they?
    4.  How do you use your pc?  Such as the strain thru usage such as heavy-medium-light gaming, watching videos, office use, facebook & the like, youtube, surfing, streaming movies/tv, skype, etc....as well as how often you use it i.e.: 24/7, a few hours (more or less) straight, etc.
    Thanks in advance for any and all participation.

    Well, let me chime in...
    1) I believe I've owned every single R, T, W, X (apart from 1** range) and Z series ThinkPad prior to *30 generation. In quantities. Make that large quantities. No IdeaPads, L, S, SL, or Edge series ever.
    2) Most of these machines are still up and running to the best of my knowledge and belief. I wouldn't be able to trace every single one of them, though.
    3) Every generation has its own specific problems, small or large. I could write a book answering this part of your question.
    4) I don't play games on my PCs but do just about everything else and most of them are turned on 24/7/365.
    The oldest working ThinkPad I own is X24 from 2001. The newest one is W520 which is not two years old yet.
    And there's about a dozen of them in between...
    What are you actually trying to determine?
    Cheers,
    George
    In daily use: R60F, R500F, T61, T410
    Collecting dust: T60
    Enjoying retirement: A31p, T42p,
    Non-ThinkPads: Panasonic CF-31 & CF-52, HP 8760W

  • HT4623 Hi!My iPAD lost its charge fast !!I've got an iPAD capacity 57,1GB and it has available 55,1GB ,version 7.0.4 .I'd like to know how long does the battery last when it is 100 % charged.

    Hi!I've just installed the iOS 7.0.4 operating system and the battery lost its charge at an incredibly speed.I'd like to know how long does the battery last if everything is right when it has 100% charge.Thanks!

    I`m `propping` up this thread to to the top of the forums again as it`s been three months and not a single community member or Apple support personnel have replied, which I find discouraging.
    I`ve tried everything - both the iOS device(s) and Apple TV have been upgraded (albeit reluctantly) to the latest versions, since iOS 7 looks like crap compared to iOS 6. Both use the same WiFi network. Bluetooth is set to `off`, as per the online tutorials on the Apple Support page.
    I also tried shutting all of them down, including the router, waiting 30 seconds and turning the router, then the Apple TV then the iOS device on sequentially with 30 seconds in between each, again as per this discussion forum, and still nothing.
    Why can Apple not make a technology, such as AirPlay, work with greater than 10%?
    Any other ideas?
    Come on, people.
    Thanks,
    Doug

  • I refurbished my macbook air 7 months ago because there was a problem with the steady state drive. Now my battery seems to be dead again. How long does the warranty last? Do I need to pay for a new battery?

    I refurbished my macbook air 7 months ago because there was a problem with the steady state drive. Now my battery seems to be dead again. How long does the warranty last? Do I need to pay for a new battery?

    As I wrote Apple will diagnose an Apple product even if it is out of warranty for free. That should be your first step to find out if the problem is the battery or something else.
    Once you have Apple telling you a 7 month old battery is defective (if that turns out to be the case)  then it becomes a game of horse trading. You'll need to speak to the tech and when he tells you there is nothing he can do you will need to speak to the tech manager and when she says most likely there is nothing they can do you go to the store manager, etc.  It is unlikely (though possible) that they will give in easily you need to be firm, polite and let on that you're willing to accept a partial reimbursement.
    So again the first step is to find out what is wrong.
    good luck

  • How long does Oleophobic Screen last?

    I just bought a new 3GS phone for 2 days. I discover that the screen is free from finger prints whereas the black rear case is full of finger prints. It seems the new oleophobic coating is really workable. I have not bought any screen protector yet but I ask myself what is the point to buy it. The screen protector must deteriorate some degree of touch screen performance. However, I am doubt how long a coating can last! Can some experienced users share usage experience with me. Thanks!

    I have had my 3GS since Sept 2009. I gets some heavy use (but careful and not roughly handled) and sometimes with sweaty fingers when I am in the gym and use my iPhone 3GS in a sports armband. The finger marks wipe off just has easy as they did on day one.
    The Oleophobic screen coating should last a while, and I would be very surprised if it wore off within 12 months or even longer come to mention it. Every day touch screen use should mean the coating should last for years in my opinion.

  • How long does iPad 2 last after it is lost?

    I left my iPad on the bus today (It has not been a good day). First thing I did was ring up the bus company. I then jumped onto the iCloud.com and used "Find my iPhone". I eventually located it (at my university), we locked ot, sent a message and played a noise / tone thing.
    I checked back on it a few hours later and it was no where to be found on iCloud, it was wifi only, but the whole uni is connected via wifi.
    My questions is, how long does the iPad last with these features enabled. There were only like three or four apps open. Other than that, I think i am screwed.
    Any ideas? Thanks in Advance.

  • How long do Linksys routers last?

    Hello.
    Is it me or do Linksys routers do not last very long? I had two different Linksys routers (many years ago's BEFSX41 v1 and 2009's WRT54GL v1.1 with their latest stock firmwares). BEFSX41's network stopped loading correctly even with its internal web pages and after reinstalling its latest firmware. WRT54GL seems to be having random and rare wired network disconnection problems with my computers and cable modem, so maybe it is the router. My friend's five years old Linksys WRT router was misbehaving even with third party firmwares (both DD-WRT and Tomato).
    Do these consumer routers not last very long?
    Thank you in advance.
    Solved!

    For me, it really depends on how we we use the device. There's no definite time span on how long the device will last. If you're having problems with the device, there are workarounds that you may do to get it working again.

  • How long does a tick last for the Tick Count (ms) VI in LabVIEW?

    I'm trying to compare the timing performance between a VI implemented in LabVIEW and another VI implemented in LabVIEW FPGA module. If I use the Tick Count in both VIs (every one in their own module), I want to know how long does a tick last in LabVIEW standard (in the computer)?
    Thanks

    Thanks again
    I think you are misunderstanding what the value of a "tick" is.  From what I gathered from reading your link (which I couldn't get to from your post, but accidentally ran into on a search) a tick of the OS clock."  Curiously, though - why 55ms?  That was mentioned as the tick of a Win95/98 OS!
    I guess you can say that the it returns the value of the next "tick" of the OS clock and returns that value in ms.  So, the value of a tick varies from OS to OS.  In Windows 95/98, for example, you can only look at the OS clock every 55ms or so, but it still returns a value that represents ms.

  • How long should my battery last on my ipod classic

    how long should my battery last on my ipod classic?

    Depends on its age, settings that in use on the device, what it is being used for, and whether or not it is being charged up to 100% each time (usually takes a minimum of about 4 hours or so).
    According to Apple tech specs for the current iPod Classic you should be able to get 36 hours of audio playback on a full charge or up to 6 hours of video.

    How long would the battery last if you were usinng it for wireless msn around the house..
    Thanks,
    Andrew

    I never get less than 3 1/2 hours and generally get a bit over 4 hours on a fully charged battery. Before unplugging I make sure BlueTooth and sound is off, the backlight is set as low as I can stand it, I have no disc in the drive, and all the applications and files I intend to use are running and loaded. The three biggest juice eaters are the display's backlight, the hard drive and optical drive so I minimize the use of all three while unplugged.
    Are Mac notebooks tough? A couple quick stories: I dropped my G3 iBook off my desk and it hit the concrete floor on its corner breaking off a large piece of plastic. I fashioned a fiberglass bandage and used the computer for 3 months before finding a functional used shell. A customer came in with a horrifically bent PowerBook last summer - it fell out of his motorcycle sidebag while he was driving (35 MPH) and was run over by at least 1 car. It booted up and the display while bent by the mangled case still worked. I actually used Migration Assistent to move his stuff to the new computer. A student brought me his MacBook which he'd dropped down half a flight of stairs at the college. It had been in a lightly padded sleeve. It looked banged up - there were some fractures to the bottom case and the hinge squealed terribly as I opened it. But the computer woke up and it checked out okay. AppleCare basically replaced everything but the innards - the guy's home insurance covered all but the deductible which was a good thing - that is an expensive repair! Would the typical PC survive these accidents? Well, I know from experience the cheap plastic Dell and HP models wouldn't.

  • How long should the battery last in between uses?

    I am just wondering how long the battery should last in between uses? I find mine really goes down FAST..I just purchased this on Sunday and charged it the right amount of time as such. The first time I used it after the initial charge I was downloading 2 music albums and just left it on and by morning the battery was drained..shouldn't it have lasted at least a few days? Its an iPod touch 16g V2.
    Then lastnight I had it charged and was browing youtube and in a couple hours the battery was about 1/2 way..is this normal?
    Thanks for your help!

    The Touch's Wireless Internet access really chews up the battery time. When you're not using the wireless, go to Settings and turn Wireless off. When you're ready to go browsing, you can always turn it back on. If you already have a wireless access set up in your abode, the Touch will quickly "re-find" it and you'll be browsing again. If you're in a public free wireless area, you'll have to log on, etc.
    If I leave wireless on all the time, my iPod Touch battery life is like halved-- sometimes more. The same holds true when viewing movies or video.
    Hope this helps!
