I have Powerbook 540c that I bought circa 1994 with OS 7 and Photoshop 3 that runs quite well. To do what, I haven't figure that part out since I can load anything into it or print anything out with it.

Oh yeah, I forgot the Power Mac G4 over in the corner.

8 years with no problems whatsoever. Still use it daily. Recently, it's been getting to be obsolete with newer internet stuff to the point there are no more upgrades for things like flash.
We have an early ibook that is 12+ years which has never had any problems other than a battery that doesn't hold charge. Plugged in, it works like new.
Have had more problems with Windows laptop that's not quite 2 yet.

I multitask heavily all day and my PCs run 24/7 for years. And your monitor doesn't care what you do. Its just a display. I'm looking at two 5 1/2 year old Samsungs. No problems. Apple gets their components and displays from the same manufacturers everyone else does.

Definite advantage of a Mac.... Porn runs much better on them.

I've got a 2005 G4 MacBook, and a 2004 G4 tower (power PC) both still run, but I rarely use them.

Porn doesn't ruin computers. Downloading it from sketchy sources with IE and no common sense can infect a computer with malware though.
