    10 Wonderful Years
    My first 'computer' was a Gateway purchased in January 1997. That one, & 2 other HP PC’s I purchased later, lasted a total of 11 years.

    On April 27 2008, I bought a 21” iMac & never looked back. I've had to upgrade the OS 4 times. 2 of those were free & the other 2 were $20. Upgraded the RAM from 2 to 6 GB $130
    That's it, no virus protection/security software, etc

    While it's not as fast as it was in 2008, it still works fine.

    Almost forgot. Thanks to those here at the forum who helped me out over the years. When I look back & see some of the questions I asked, I'm surprised no one said something like
    "what kind of an idiot are you ?
    But if memory serves, none of you ever did.
    That shows how classy this forum is.

    Thanks!

    Congrats on your tenth anniversary of sorts. Any plans to celebrate with some new gear?

    Maybe as early as this fall. I'm a storm chaser, & use iMovie for most of my editing. Went through quite a few crashes/lock ups last year, & now I'm shopping for a 4K camcorder.
    It will only get worse. I can only hope that new iMacs are as bulletproof as this one.
