Of all the Villagers, Dave wins.
How long do you keep a Mac around before upgrading to a new model? Three years? Five years? Longer? A quick check of the past decade of my Mac purchases indicates that each model lasts about six years.
Somewhere around late 2005 we bought a PowerPC Mac mini, added a keyboard, mouse, and an old display– it served as our desktop Mac for a few years before being replaced by an Intel Inside iMac. Since the Mac mini was still working OK, and nobody in the family or neighborhood wanted a Mac with PowerPC chips inside, I tucked it under the TV stand next to the cable company’s internet connection router.
That’s where the Mac mini sits today. Almost 14 years later.
