I have a Sony Vaio that I used for ten years, the poor thing endured a lot. The battery was the first to give up of course, then the fans, so it started to overheat if used for too long. I put it on rest after I got my desktop, but surprise surprise, the desktop’s mobo died too soon to compete with the Vaio’s lifespan.
My sister just recently was looking for some old photos that we had stored in that one and surprisingly it booted up and was still running. So even after using it for ten years, the old bud is still not giving up. Best part is that it ran with the infamous windows vista who everyone hated.
It’s incredible how some laptops can last.
