Mid 2011 iMac processor upgrades-- capped or better yet to come?
I have a mid 2011 27" iMac with the base processor (2.7ghz i5). I currently have no complaints with the processing capacity, but, the world will march on and one day I will.
So, my question:
I know, with some effort, I can upgrade the processor to the high spec version. Here's my question: Is that the best processor I'll ever be able to put into it? As in, one day can I put in the i7 they use in the new iMacs instead, as Apple adds drivers for them? Or, because mine is sandy bridge and they don't be making any more sandybridge computers, that's the highest spec that will ever work with Apple's drivers?
If it's already the best I'll ever be able to run it in it, I'll upgrade sooner than later... but, if not, I currently have no complaints, so will likely wait a bit.
Is this a good question?
