I have a machine that is used for work applications and not really anything else. I am curious if this 6 year old processor will last a full 10 years. This PC is used for office tasks only. No video editing and no gaming.

I3 2100
4gb of ram
500 GB HDD
Integrated Intel Graphics
Windows 10

Pretty sure that processors don’t have built in expiration dates.

Does your hardware still work? Is the PC’s performance what you need it to be? If so, then your computer is fine

I can't really imagine it struggling at Office because of the CPU, though you didn't mention any particular software. An SSD or more RAM might help if it's feeling a bit sluggish.
Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there

CPU is one of most durable part of PC. Assuming your PC have decent cooler system, then you don't have to worry with your i3.

Your PC will continue to work as a workstation, as long as the hardware doesn't expire.
