HP 4100 Service Life

Hi Folks,

I'm fixing an HP 4100 printer that has 151,000 copies on it. This got me to wondering what the average life expectancy of this printer is. Am I fixing an old jealopy, or does this printer have a lot of life left in it?
According to the printer's specs., you've only got a month's worth of use out of it so far.

The print speed is greatly increased in the HP4100 at 25 ppm with the first page out in 12 seconds, creating a higher cartridge consumption rate. These printers will make a huge impact on the office environment with the duty cycle being more than doubled at 150,000 a month compared to the HP4000 at 65,000 a month, creating a higher cartridge consumption rate.

I figure they hit end of life when the cost of the individual repair is more then a new printer. If that. Or if it's having a major problem that I can't figure out (usually electrical/software related)
