Could be.I don't agree on the mac part, i did mac support for years for a few companies in the graphics industry, and mac os (OSX) is stable, but very limited in possiblilities.
And there hardware, that used to be reock solid is crap these days. The breakdown reate for mac devices is like 5x the rate for relative cheap dell devices, and the costs to buy or repair are much higher. It's that our clients still used mac that we also need it for making our software work or that company would have left mac longtime. The only mac device i own myself is an Iphone SE2 (because android is even more crappy), for the rest, mac needs to stay out of my house... If you still got a win10 device, keep it on win10 and otherwise try Linux Ubuntu (that is relative easy to use) or so.
According to Macworld the average life of a mac is between 5 and 8 years. https://www.macworld.com/article/673939/this-is-how-long-macs-and-macbooks-last.html
My experience of macs purchased between 2002 and 2019 is that they are lasting more than 10 years.
Personally, although I really like linux ubuntu I would only recommend it to IT people and people who don't mind using the command line a lot.
