    How many years would a rMBP last with daily use?

    What year? What specs?

    They say the battery is good for 1,000 cycles. Which is...8 years?

    My wife has a 2008 MBP and I have a 2011 MBP

    Both still going strong. (both upgraded to SSD)

    Much depends upon how you take care of it. If you're not abusing it (letting it get banged around, food or other stuff falling into it, liquids kept away from it), realistically 7 or more years ('course...by then, it may not support the latest OS)

    Even without a lot of cycles the battery can die in 3-5 years

    You can service the battery you know that, right?
