What is the average life-expectancy of a Dell Dimension 1100 desktop computer
I have Dell Dimension 1100 desktop computer that is seven years old.
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.
