    7 Years Ago
    7 years ago I took the plunge and bought a 27" iMAC, (27-inch, Mid 2010) processor 3.2 GHz Intel Core i3, memory 12 GB 1333 MHz DDR3, graphics ATI Radeon HD 5750 1 GB) with the military discount it cost me less than $2000 even with 3 years of Apple Care.

    Aside from a short period of time where I was constantly getting the Beach Ball Of Death (assuming it was related to an OS update which went away on it's own) my iMAC has performed FLAWLESSLY. I even game on it, I run X-Plane 10 and it runs without any difficulties, nice smooth graphics and no jerky jerky video.

    It still looks and operates like the day I unboxed it 7 years ago.

    So I just wanted to check in with an update. The way things are going I hope to back in 12 months with an 8 year update.

    Cheers

    Tom, I have a pretty old iMac myself, and it's still chugging on, running my home automation server.

    But if you check in a year from now, it probably won't be here but at the new site. See my sig for information.

    Check this thread Tom, as the company that owns this forum is closing it down soon. The good news is the volunteer administrators are creating a new forum at www.mac-forums.org to replace it. Read the thread for more information .
