    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.
