    It depends on various forms / factors. Like brand names / parts quality / way of use / taking care & so on. As a vendor provides a warranty / guarantee period, so we can take for this time, it can run smoothly.

    It depends greatly on the software. I had my old personal laptop for 6 years and it suited my needs. In the business world we have some systems getting up graded every 18-24 months. When looking to invest in new software, check the system requirements, you may need a change if you are closer to the minimum. Eventually your software will be so slow or no longer run then it's time to upgrade.

    I'm still running my 6 years old laptop that works perfectly fine till today. But if you are really talking about the average, it depends a lot on the user who uses the device. are they running it 24/7 on those devices?

    Same here, after 6 years my cooling fan in my laptop went. I spend 2-3 hours a day on it. My work desktop is a different story. I'm on that about 9 hours a day. Over the years, we have heard that it's better to leave you system on 24/7. The reason is less wear starting and stopping the drive on a daily basis. I leave mine on for remote access from home using a VPN. This desktop I have had for about 4 years with no problems.

    I am using my laptop more than 4 years, make Asus, and it is running successfully still now. So, that depends of your caring nature.

    Any device will last longer if you take appropriate care of it.

    As others have mentioned, you can have a machine working for many, many years.
