does death approach?

My Macintosh's monitor is gently but noticeably flickering. The problem seems to have started tonight, and I have a bad feeling that this doesn't bode well for my computer, which I received as a 40th-birthday gift in 2009. As a precaution, I may have to start backing up my data onto writable DVD-ROMs, just in case the flickering proves to be the harbinger of a sudden and total system collapse.

I would have thought that a Mac's typical life span is longer than four years.
