Intel Core i 7

A question quite weird though. I’m planning to buy a laptop powered by Intel i 7 11th gen. I couldn’t think of another platform where I could have an idea of how long it can last (starting 2021). My old laptop is an Intel i 5 powered machine that works perfectly after 8 years (since 2014). Will i 7 powered machines be compatible for new OS, new features and (not a gamer) new updates for some 10 years?
