Glass-casing a laptop?

A certain relatively expensive, recent (2011) but not current computer is for my needs the apotheosis of laptops. I can buy another one, but how long should I think it can be glass-cased before it starts to rot?

The current machines have gone in a direction I don't care for and the idea of buying any is right out. My current computer is the best I have ever used and if it were possible I would keep it for the rest of my life - but "fings break, donn'ey?". I can buy another one which would be the backup. Is it worth doing if I want it to work when booted five years hence? Yes, I'm willing to forego five years' worth of "advances".
