Hi there, I've been offered a 24" imac, 2.4GHz Intel Core Duo Processor, 2MB Shared l2 Cache and a 320gb Hard Drive along with iLife'11, iwork '08 and Snow leopard.
This imac is used as there is no way i can buy a new or refurbished imac unfortunatly.
Basically I just have a few questions because I'm not a computer buff and want to know if this imac is a good deal and right for me.
I'm a design student so use photoshop and illustator quite heavily so how would the specs cope with that? I'm right in thinking i can upgrade the ram which might make it faster and better at multitasking? Is it also possible to increase the gb to like 500?
My other question is about upgrades, will it upgrade to mountain lion easily? And how far into the future do you think it will be able to upgrade? Also with applications and apps such as photoshop, where will I stand with future programs like this?
Thanks for your time guys
