Dan Moren:

This longevity goes hand in hand with the decline in specs that I wrote about last month. We’ll continue to use our devices as long as they accomplish what we want them to, not simply when specs suggest we “should” upgrade.

I have a 2008 MacBook Pro still in service as a home server, as it replaced my 2005 G4 Mac mini — and that happened just a few months ago. Apple really should be given credit for the longevity of their devices.
