How Long Do Mac Computers Typically Last?

Many of us face the same dilemma when considering the purchase of a new Mac: should we buy immediately, or hold off in anticipation of the next release? Moreover, how can we predict when the next model will be available?

Attempting to reduce this uncertainty, Mactactic provides estimates on how long current models will remain on the market.

For example, the latest Airport Extreme is currently listed as a “buy” because it’s the newest version, whereas the Mac Pro has a “Caution: May be updated” warning.

This approach is admittedly speculative, but it adds an element of strategy to the buying process.

Thanks, Brady!
