    Around 4 year old 1st gen Intel Atom system here. But since it is designed to be slow, performance is like an 8 year old computer.

    My laptop is 4 years old, and my pc 6 years. And I must say the switch from windows to Ubuntu about 7 years ago definately contributed to this as it just doesn't seem to get as slow over time compared to windows computers.

    This is really tough one for me to answer, because I keep doing upgrades and partial rebuilds, although I went with 4 years per the instructions.

    The MOBO/CPU/RAM are all about 4 years old
    The video card and PSU are about 5
    The case is about 8
    The 1TB drive with /home on it is about 3
    The 160gb drive with / on it 5 years. Before that I was still using the 40GB WD that came with a gateway I bought way back in '99. 9 years for a HDD is pretty good if you ask me.
    The DVD burner is 6 or so
    The WiFi is only a year


    I do have to say, I've been seriously considering upgrading again too. I'd really like to get one of the 8-core AMD's (which means new mobo, ram and psu of course) to speed up my DVD-mkv transcodes and processing raw camera files. I've also been seriously considering a new video card for Skyrim. It's such a shame to play that game with textures at medium and everything else at low, but that's all my GeForce 9800GT can handle.

    Self-assembled mine last summer. It's in my sig, SSD isn't mentioned but it's 240GB Intel 520. The previous one I built in late 2008, now using it as a router and VMWare/file server.

    I literally just built a small form factor PC and came back to Ubuntu. Last time I used Ubuntu was in the 9.x days. Wow, I'm loving how polished it looks! I'm glad to be back.

    New build:
    AMD A10 5800k
    Biostar Hi-Fi A85S3
    Kingston Hyper X 1866 8GB
    Hitachi 750GB HDD (I should get an SSD soon for OS only)
    Xion xon-720p slim case

    It should be 4.5 years old, 5 in june. Then the motherboard just gave up. So now I have a new rig.

    Mine is was built earlier this year, but out of 5 year old parts cause I'm cheap and it was unexpected. I just originally wanted a CPU upgrade and ended up replacing the entire core components due to reasons.

    Computer:
    Core 2 Duo E8400 3.00GHz
    4GB G.Skilz DDR2 800MHz
    Intel DG41RQ Motherboard
    Nvidia Quadro 600 Graphics
    Creative Labs XF-I xTreme Gamer Audio
    2x320GB WD Caviar HD's non-raid
    Fractal Designs Core 1000 Case
    Ultra 450W PSU
    Lite-On SATA CD/DVD-RW Drive
    Logitec Z313 Speakers
    Samsung T220 Monitor
    Logitec K and M 120 Keyboard and Mouse Combo

    It runs great and is powerful. It has a few more years left on it before I have to upgrade to keep up.
