    Don't have too many data points to go off of but I had the 2007 mbp in college, got the 2010 MacBook Air my senior year, and I just upgraded to the 2015 MacBook. So, every ~4 years.

    I am on about 3.5 years with my MBA now. I think I'll more likely get an iMac before another laptop barring something catastrophic. None of my Windows laptops lasted more than 2 years.

    Yeah, i got the mac pro in 2007 for college, and just got the 2015 15-inch mac pro a couple months ago.

    Just wondering what the general turnaround was

    I've made sleep a priority for the first time in my life, and I function much better as a result. By tracking my sleep patterns I've also learned a lot about myself.

    I use the Sleep Tracker app for my phone but I'm not really sure what to do with all the data...

    What was causing you to upgrade thinkpads every two years? My personal laptop is a T61 from 2007 that works just fine for web browsing, although I'd like a little more speed for Lightroom (I've upgraded to an SSD and bumped the RAM). Work laptop is a T420s that's coming up on three years old with no real issues. That said, we're on a three year upgrade cycle and I might switch to a 15" macbook.

    This was pre 2006, and they where good laptops. I just had the luck of one crapping out with some fault in the motherboard, and one where I kept having to swap in a new harddrive every couple of months (this particular issue stumped everybody, in the end I decided to just ditch it for a white macbook). To be fair, I had to put in two new HDD's in the white macbook as well. Now on my second air.

    I have a 12 year old x31 around here somewhere that was still working last I checked. Trying to wean myself off the Thinkpad trackpoint. Have never been a fan of trackpads, but that's definitely one area where Apple is a step up on the competition.

    clit mouse for life!

    I hate how apple reversed the default scroll motion on the trackpads/mighty mouse to make them feel like dragging the screen. Obviously I could get used to it, but it is the first thing I change. I don't like that you move one finger downwards to move the mouse down, but you move two fingers upwards to scroll down...mixing paradigms

    I haven't used a mouse in years. Magic Trackpad for the iMac at work and a laptop everywhere else.

    I use a RAZR death adder for a mouse. Hate using the trackpad, so much slower.

    Says the guy with 1 port. You're going to need to stick so many dongles in that thing. Gross.

    The only times I use and will ever use that port will be for charging. I never plug in any accessories.

    I sent you some naked pictures of Piob, but I put them on an SD card.

    Sorry you will have to plug a card reader into a usb-to-usb-c dongle...that's worse than if you had to wear two condoms.
