Watchguard x700 still ok?

I came across a Watchguard X700 firewall.  I need a firewall for a school.

Is this FW too old?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I hope not. I'm still using a Watchguard X500. Works great but "End-of-Life" according to Watchguard was 2009 for both the x500 and x700. I bought it in 2005 so four years doesn't seem long enough to me. But ten is stretching it. I intend to replace it this year.
