This is a hard question to answer really as it is totally dependant on how much you are likely to print, whether in black and White or colour, whether text, graphics, images etc. I think your only way to gauge how long is to note what date you started using it and use it continually as you would normally be using it and keep an eye on what the levels of the contents of the cartridges are and when nealy empty have a look how long they have lasted.

Each person is different on the usage and requirement and it is really a case of finding out yourself. Thats my opinion.

Gooner has already answered your question (in more details than one would expect).
Like gas in your car, how long does a tank last you ? it depend on how you drive and how often you drive.
Like food in your fridge, how long will a fridge full of food last ? it depend on how many people are eating and how often and how much they eat per each visit...
Like .... Ok, I better stop... I am running out of keyboard clicks, the manual said 50 million press and should last 10 years.....

Get the drift ?
