The computer is turned on 12 hours per day and is used on average three hours per day, mainly to send / receive emails, surf the web, use Word Office software and stream movies.
Last year it went very slow, but after a service and the insertion of an additional 1GB of RAM, it regained a reasonable level of performance. It now has I.25 GB of RAM.
My question is this. What is the average life-expectancy of this type of computer.
Sometimes Dell offers a trade-in deal in respect of old computers (provided that they are functional).
If I could estimate when my present computer was almost at the end of its life, I might be able to take advantage of such a deal.
