    I think of using this 6 days a week. How many years will it last? I also wonder what do you think about the cost efficiency. Do I get the best bang for the buck or do you suggest another one?

      6 days a week, yes, it’ll handle it, and same also for the cost it is worthy enough based on its specs. This laptop use HHD type drive though, but, you can upgrade it later to SSD if you want more performance. As long as you take good care of it, even an under budget laptop should last 4 to 5 years.
