8 years ago I bought a laptop for my mother. It has a Radeon 4100 SDK that is now becoming so outdated that Flash Player websites deny it access. Because of the inaccessibility, I had buy another laptop for her. One of the things that turned me on the PC is backward compatibility. Now that looks yet another gimmick.

Laptops usually don't live for 8 years. Windows 10 doesn't support old software and firmware. Old Windows isn't supported. Built in obsolescence. Time to replace the laptop.

Well, you bought a machine that specifically sacrifices upgradability and modularity for the sake of mobility and ease of use - so I wouldn't fault the laptop for that.

Besides, Technology and Software still evolve and change, so it's near on impossible to correctly predict what the future will bring.
