Computer parts are like lightbulbs -- they COULD go for years and years and years, or they COULD go *at any moment.*

Stay backed up and don't worry about it. I would say the *average* Mac users tends to *want* to replace their machine (rather than *has* to) about every five-six years. Power users a bit more often, light-duty users a bit less often.
