How long have you had your laptop for?

I have a Dell 1520 laptop and I got it in October 2007. So it is almost two years old. I got it in a free laptop deal at £20 a month for 24 months. It includes free phone calls but I do have to pay for line rental. How long have you had your laptop? Are you still pleased with it? Do you intend to keep your laptop or replace it with a better laptop?

My first laptop was of the Toshiba Satellite A135 series. I've had it since the start of my first year in college. Though I'm sad to say it's no longer working after 3 years of use. For some unknown reasons, its motherboard got damaged and when you turn it on, the screen's completely blacked out. I went to the service center to have it fixed and it turns out that I would have to get my motherboard replaced to have it working again. Needless to say, I'm dissatisfied with my first laptop since it only lasted for 3 years (My sister has a less expensive laptop brand but it's still working after 5 years!). I'm now currently in the lookout to buy a new one since I badly need it for school. So yeah, pretty much I'm replacing my sucky laptop.

I wish I could afford to update. Mine is only 30 months old, and the disc tray has broken for the second time. Apart from that it's fine. I have an Acer Aspire, 47202, bought in Thailand.

I have Acer aspire 4720 given to me by my brother, and it cost for almost $600 with a WIFI and built in camera. He bought in cash and not interested to pay it through monthly deal offer by most electrical shops as it more costly than buying it directly..

Hi maximax, My laptop is a compaq one. It is a presario CQ40. I brought my laptop in January 2009. SO, it is can still be consider new since it is not over a year yet. But I used my laptop a lot and had to sent to the repair centre twice already. But I am pleased with my laptop. The only problem I think is I overused it. I never thought to replace it for now or a near future.

The laptop that i am currently using was bought June of 2007... so that means it's like 26 months old... and it is already showing some signs of wearing down... it is still fast but there are times when i get a blank screen... so i would have to put in on a sleep mode just to get the screen going again... i would love to get a netbook... but i don't think my boss would give me the money for that one... so i would have to save up to buy my very own...

I had a Dell which was given to me when I was 12 years old now its been more than 10 years I have the laptop, early January I had to buy another one because the one I had was not very useful so I had purchased a new Dell A860 which is nine months and I like it a lot, I will change for a new one when this one turns 5 years because I still have a guarantee on the laptop if ever it is broken up.
