This is a really interesting thread for the variety of responses. There's still a few C2D iMacs being used at work and they truck along fine for the most part, although really snappy editing work with HD files is beyond them.
After four years most computers are going to be thoroughly obsolete, but you only need to head over to the PowerPC forum to find that people can extend the useful life of their machines dramatically. The only threat with Apple dropping C2D Macs is that you'd lose your security updates after two, possible more years (assuming Apple ratchets down the yearly pace up updates.) By that point, your computer would be eight years old, a fairly long-lived and respectable life
Whether or not it makes sense to put in upgrades with diminishing returns to a machine, buy a new one every X years, or just run your spec'd machine into the sunset with whatever you built it out as from the get-go, there's no "right" way to use your Macs.
