    Yeah, an SSD is truly a life-changer for old Macs.

    Glad to hear things are progressing. Keep us "posted."

    Glad to hear the update on your health. Will keep praying for healing for you.

    I put an SSD into my MBP (early 2011, 17") so now I have a 17" MBA! I think you'll be pleased with the performance pickup.

    Glad to hear you are progressing well. Will keep praying for a full and perminent recovery.

    I put a 500GB SSD in my 2009 Macbook and discovered a whole new rejuvinated computer. I had to clean and re-apply heat sink grease as she would overheat and shut down. Once I did that, she began running like a "new" old gal with a face lift!

    Hello everyone.

    Quick update. Yesterday was the first anniversary of my stem cell transplant. Everything seems fine and my bloods are stable so all is good at the mo.

    I did have a worrying few weeks about 2 months ago when my back pain returned to pre surgery levels so I was fearing the worst, but a CT scan showed no new damage or lesions so again all good (just gotta take more painkillers).

    So once again thank you to everyone on here who has passed on their good wishes.

    Now, to celebrate, should I replace my 3.5 year old iMac.................? :-)

    Glad to hear you are over that hump. As for the 3.5 yo iMac? All I can say is, if I could I would, and you certainly deserve it.
    I'm getting a set of Bose Bluetooth EarPods for my wedding anniversary, no more pesky cables for me.

    Terrific that you've passed that milestone! As for the iMac, that's still pretty new in my book. But then, I did hold on to my last Mini for 8 years!

    Wonderful update! Hope that all continues to go well. BTW, my wife's iMac is pushing 3 1/2 years old, so may be replacing after the new OS is released. Dave

    Not sure if we will see a new iMac this year or not. The last update to the iMac series was late 2015 (Oct 2015) so it may not be until next year before we see anything new. MacRumors buyers guide advises not to buy an iMac for now. It's up to you. Glad to hear of your health progress.
