Wife on her second Toshiba laptop and has had no real problems. Hope reading your thread doesn’t jinx the one she has now!!!!! Computers… cars… televisions… phones… Everything we own, anymore, is “throw-away”. They design them to fail so you purchase new ones. Just turned over 100,000 miles on my Silverado. She still seems to be in excellent shape. I asked the dealer, at the last oil change, how 100,000 miles on my truck related to human years. Is my truck “over the hill”? The service manager told me 100,000 on my truck was like 30 in human years. Expect double that… 200,000/60 years. Some will run to 300,000/90 years, but a lot of parts will either need replaced or will no longer work. I’ve already begun the replacement of body parts in the 60’s.
