For my 1:1 next year I am getting Chromebooks on a 2 year lease. 1:1 devices get a lot of legitimate wear and tare and after running MSJ's for three years in would not expect any device to last 4 years, let alone a sub-$500 device.
As for other computers, I recently was looking at my numbers and came up with a $100 rule. If a computer cost me $1000 then I would expect it to last me 10 years. At $300 it should last 3.
