Can you do DIY upgrades & repairs for 2012 and later iMacs?
I am upgrading my desktop after about 20 years and now need a computer that can last a long time b/c they are big purchases.
I like the newer models, but I am not techy YET, so the superdriver of mid 2011 & older models is convenient.
If I am need this computer for a particular program, ArcGIS, that I believe in the long run as I use it more & more professionally will absorb a lot of memory, should I stick with the Mid 2011 iMac (that I just got b/c I thought it would more than suit my needs) and do upgrades to SSD through your kits once the warranty is over? Or should I go with the newer and actually less expensive faster technology that is around now and increasing as we speak. I don't want my capacity to make maps to become obsolete.
In fact, I just purchased a Mid 2011 iMac 27" i7 with 16GB Memory & 1TB HDD. However, it is slow as a snail with a mere 5 tabs open, and only the OS7 operating system. Way slower than my older macbook pro. Should I ditch it?
Is this a good question?
