Despite the rapid pace of technology development, the average computer lifespan is anywhere from two to five years. How often you use the computer, what you use it for, and the quality of the build all play a major role in how long it lasts.
Although you may want a new computer, the idea of purchasing a new machine may not sit well or fit into your budget. Fortunately, you can extend the life of your current computer without breaking the bank by upgrading one or two components.
