    I was talking to someone online recently, and mentioned that it turns outs my Aptiva IBM isn't dead after all (my mom thought it was), and now it's at a university. And it ends up something like "In computer years, it's probably a mature student."

    What do you think the computer/human years ratio is? :p Or does it depend on the brand, hardware, etc?

    Just a thread for discussion. This is what happens when I stay up late and have too much sugar.

    Computers generally don't die, they just get thrown out. Properly maintained computer equipment can last decades.

    Stop spamming this forum with these threads. It's annoying.
