Actually, their oldest laptops with captive batteries and iPhones aren't 5 years old yet. I have an iPod that's older than 5 years that still holds a decent charge, though. To be honest, when it stops doing do so, I'll be wishing I could pop a new battery into it easily.

EDIT: Apropos of our discussion, I see that Apple just added these battery info pages to their site:
