That was true fifty years ago.They haven't manufactured Macs in the US in a quarter of a century. During that 25 years I have owned a dozen Macs and I've never owned on that wore out. The second oldest one I have around at the moment is an 8100/80 that I bought back in 1994 (this is so old that the late Jerry Garcia of the Greatful Dead bought an identical machine). I still fire it up when I get nostalgic for mid-nineites games and it still works. The original startup drive works too. (I used it for years for high-end graphics and magazine publishing). My oldest is a 512 K with original drive. It still fires up as well.
