Thread: Replacing an iMac DV with a mini
11-10-2009, 07:01 PM #1Replacing an iMac DV with a mini
My Dad's iMac DV of 9 years finally died and he's looking to replace it with a lower-end mini. He checks email, uses the Internet, and some minor photoshop stuff in addition to word processing. Would the mini be a good choice for him?

You didn't mention if you are only considering new computers...or are open to getting a used computer.
So it's possible that the cost of a Mac-Mini + a monitor...may get close to the cost of a much newer used iMac.
If you can get a display cheap, recycle the old iMac's keyboard & mouse...then a Mac-mini would be a good choice.
Something to consider,

If thats all your going to do Its Ok ..just remember your limited to upgrade path. I always would go for used if thats right for you.
