Will the 11in MBA 4gb/128gb with 500gb external work WELL for 3 years?

the title says most, im in high school, sophmore year, and my PC is dying, =/ and my current laptop is a 10v hackintosh which is just a pain to use.. i don't really like the weird keyboard and tinie-tiny trackpad.. plus the OS has some malfunctions on the screen res which really pisses me off sometimes.... so i wanna get a macbook air 11in. with its current technology, and my slight computer abuse, i use my laptop ALOT! do you think the MBA (4gb/128gb ssd) would last me 4 years? any 1st gen MBA users still going strong? i realize the MBA had some pretty wimpy specs then, but now, the specs looks pretty good. better than my dell xps pc's. lolol

If you have a 10v then your hardware requirements are probably low. The 11" should last you, as computers from 3 years ago can still browse the internet and check e-mail just fine.
