how many years should macbook pro last?
I'm buying a new mac computer. I will either buy the expensive version Mac Mini and I will upgrade the ram up to 16gb or I will buy the MacBook pro 13'. Either refurbished or new. In specs the mac mini is better. But I want the MacBook pro for portability but how many years should it last??

My 13' white macbook w/ standard specs lasted me from 2006-2012. Around that time the drastic updates in operating systems meant I could not longer run the newest software. Although for browsing, youtube, watching movies, and doing some papers for college, it stilled worked fine. I gave it to my mother who uses it to this day for light browsing and such. Battery is pretty shot, but the machine still works reliably.
