    Lithium Ion batteries have a shelf life not too different from their life in regular use. About 4 years is the accepted answer.

    Wow Cybergypsy I sure wish I was rich like you where I could just buy computers and never open them and just sit them in the closet. :D

    All joking aside, why would you buy things and never open them for years? That's just money down the drain.
