    So I know that running BOINC causes your CPU usage to spike because it's crunching data, hammering the CPU..

    my concern is running this all day on a laptop.. would we see a significant decrease in life if it's run all day long for days/weeks/months on end?

    You won't harm your machine by doing that. Computers are designed to be used a lot.
