    I'm talking about when it dies literally, not working and so on. Only reason I am asking this is because of that walking/shaking to get the 10 coin. My DSi still works even though the cover looks like it has some yellow grime on it...

    2 weeks.

    How can anybody know this? I mean, it hasn't been out for more than 2 years.

    Honestly, the battery will die first before the system, assuming you take great care of it (a lot of people say they are while in fact they are abusing it).

    As long as you can keep getting new batteries for it it will most likely outlive you.

    Number of scratches+Battery life with 3D on÷Nintendo's Profit Margin for the year×The year you bought it=How long it'll last.

    it will last till you break it for sure, most things without moving parts do.
    might have to replace the battery every 3-7 years.

    Here you go, since you don't want to break it but still get coins:

    The link to the plans are gone to some of them, but if you got any sense in building with the kit, replicating it shouldn't be an issue.
