Hi, In one month, more or less, my ibook G4 will turn 4 : ) !!! It has been great having it around and I am most satisfied : ) !!! However, after four years with it. One wonders, how long is the life of an Apple laptop ?? or for that matter of any laptop. This is my first laptop, so no previous experience. I use my ibook G4 to surf the internet and with very simple applications. I don't give it much work, beside the five to six hours I use it everyday. I just wonder if there is a life span to my computer ?? Thank you very much, very kind regards, igmolinav.
