Will Thinkpads from 2005 era be sustainable for web use in say the next the next ten-fifteen years? I have no real reason to buy another laptop as I only use it for office work and browsing. Just worried YouTube and new web technologies will put a strain on old processors and memory. What are your thoughts? Anyone using any system made before 2005?

Believe me, I wish they would, but JS, trackers and poor coding, with "optimizations" for newer ULV processors, old hardware that should be able to run basic websites will choke.

The t60 is almost depricated as we speak. The XX20 series will still be good for 5 years. Regardless if a 2005 laptop can handle the load, in another 10 years that laptop will be worn out cosmetically.

Depends on what you consider "web use".

The Pentium 4 540 with 1 GB of RAM dated around late '04 I'm posting from at the moment has no problem handling a 30+ tab session of mostly 4chan, wiki and other sites that are more or less light on the JavaScript cancer, likewise for my Pentium 4 1300. Going further back, Mac OS 9 and NT/98 systems still make good e-mail checkers, shitposters, FTP servers and general office productivity systems.

I wouldn't however say the same if you were heavily into something like media streaming, where the JS shit will rip even top-end multi socket systems to shreds in no time.

I've got cosmetically perfect hardware going back 20+ years, as long as you take care of it and don't put it near abrasive surfaces you'll be good.

it has an i5 too so it wont die out like garbage amd cores.

Dude, in 15 years it will literally be garbadge or fucking rubble. Get a new PC at least every 8 years.

>>52644083
Maybe if you buy garbage. PCs still running after 20-25 years are not very uncommon at all.

>implying the shit pumped out right now will not disintegrate after a decade

Those monsters from 2 decades ago are a COMPLETE DIFFERENT animal compared to what we have now.

Also, compare the original GameBoy with current handhelds.

I have a T410 that's been dropped off of ladders, had coffee spilled on it, been in a car accident, and all it has is a small crack on the bottom left

I hear you there, OP's talking about 2005-era shit though which is still pretty solid, and honestly while the heavy aluminum meme macbook clones of today are probably going to get thinned out, there's a lot of high-end shit still in production that will probably last just as long and have a pretty long useful life too as long as you don't kick it around too much.

At least that's what experience seems to tell me, around 15 years ago was when highly integrated, kind of shoddy modern PCs as we know them seem to really start appearing, plenty of those are still going strong. I think other than hard disk crashes, caps are probably what you need to worry about the most.
