How Old Is Your Computer? [MakeUseOf Poll]

Ads by Google

In a timely fashion, we asked you last week about the ways you follow the 2012 Olympic games. The most surprising outcome, at least for me, is that most of you don’t even follow the Olympics. Not even the medal count. But what of those who do?

Out of 232 votes in total, 25% watch the games on TV, 9% watch it on live streaming, 8% follow the results using an app or website, 2% follow the results in the newspaper, 1% follow the results on Twitter or Facebook, 20% use more than one of these methods, 3% use a different method which was not mentioned, and a full 32% don’t follow the games at all.

Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.

Don’t forget to check out last week’s best comment by Arron Walker, which was awarded 150 reward points!

While less timely than the Olympics, this is one should turn out interesting. Technology is advancing at an incredible rate, and a laptop bought 2 years ago might already be considered old compared to today’s offers. Some stay with a computer or laptop for as long as possible before upgrading, while others prefer to upgrade to a newer version every year or two. My own laptop is 3.5 years old, and I’ve just started thinking of a new one. How old is your main computer right now? Let’s see if we can get some interesting MakeUseOf stats!

How old is your computer usually before you consider a new one? What makes you decide it’s time to get a new one? Share all your thoughts in the comments!
