If you sit this on a desktop and don't carry it around I give it 2+ years before it might need service. It will still need you giving the vents a shot of canned air every 3 to 6 months just to be sure.

This is not a laptop for students that carry it around. We've discussed this in prior posts.

If you want to get a laptop, pull back to the i5 with SWITCHABLE GRAPHICS and 16 or less inches on the display.
