How old do you let your computer get before buying another?

How old do you let your computer get before buying another one?

I can't remember how old my laptop is but it's hanging in there. I have an Asus that stays cool so I keep it on all day long and it never gets overheated, not like the Dell computers do! Those things catch fire!!

I think that if Windows 11 starts get forced upon people that I'll get a new computer.

I usually upgrade every 3 to 5 years depending on circumstance.  Right now the PC i have is coming up on it's 3rd year, but I had an issue with it 'fixed' earlier this year and now I feel as though it'll last a bit longer (They put in a whole new motherboard with new components) so i'm hoping to maybe get the full 5 years out of it now before I go and buy a new one.

I just upgrade parts in my PC every few years but I am looking to downsize away from a bulky gaming rig to a mini. I can get so much power for so little these days it is worth just having a smaller computer to allow for more desk space. My desk is fairly crammed!

Mini PCs are looking pretty good as of late, so I can see the appeal.  I have also thought about the idea of a mini PC, but I'm too far out from my next upgrade to really get too involved with it.

Usually, about 3 years. I had been hoping my current one would last a bit longer, since it cosy almost twice as much as my previous one - but at 3.5 years old, it's already getting rather rickety...

Well, my rickety computer lasted for less than a month after I posted this!

The replacement is, therefore, nearly a year old now - and I am rather hoping it'll last longer...

Personally, I would spin it hard down the road until it's broken or now too low to do anything without getting frustrated, then I would know it's time to get rid of it and upgrade immediately. I have always believed in the assessment that, "if it's not broken, don't change or try fixing it".
