Computer Years


Good dog, now read me my email aloud! (Image via.)

Most people are familiar with the concept of dog years – one human year equaling seven dog years. (Even though most professionals consider this to be a much too inaccurate scale.) So I wanted to propose a scale for another beloved pet – our computers. The mathematical formula has been described below.

Where A is the age of your computer in human years

It is equivalent to the following table:

Human years Computer years
1 5
2 15
3 30
4 50
5 75
6 105

There is absolutely no scientific basis to this, other than my personal opinion on when an all-round computer gets old.
So, what do you all say? 🙂

    Cat years better, I think!

  2. Nyah, you’re too cruel. My mom’s 12 years old desktop is still pretty much alive. Well, the browser window opens and from time to time it even doesn’t crash… 🙂
