So I still have that model from 2010. It has been going strong for around 4-5 years now and only currently have I been constantly using the MBP. I bring it to school almost everyday and probably open and close the lid 5-6 times a day. Sometimes even more. How strong are MBP hinges? Are they known to last upward to 10 years and more. This was a $1799 computer so I want it to last on a mechanic standpoint too. I know people have macbook pros that last them 6+ years, but what about the mechanics? Like the hinges and what not. I am a bid OCD when it comes to technology heh..
