I use Time Machine to back-up my laptop, and I can tell you that you would need a much larger back-up HDD than the laptop's own drive, otherwise it will begin to overwrite quite quickly. But that is from my experience with Time Machine. It probably depends what back-up program you use!
I'm sure your new MBP will outlast 2013! My MB is almost 5, and my G4 Cube is coming on 10 years old!
All in all, I am very jealous of your purchase! I hope your plan works!
I'm using a WD pocket drive with about 250 gigs of space..it'll hold up to 6 backups before it overwrites the oldest. It's why I back up every two weeks (and leave the drive disconnected between BU's)
