I agree. Too bad about Steve Jobs, he was the man who revolutionized computing. Macintosh 128k 32 years ago, the iphone. But in 2011, Steve died and all went down from there. It almost seems like the rest of his company was waiting for him to die so they could make their own design "improvements."

What? Down with Big Brother!

Hey, Big Brother has managed to put a camera and microphone in everybody's hand and pocket via your cell phone and iPad. Also on your desktop and he got YOU to pay for it! One small line of code and the camera light does not come on. They can even track where you go, what you buy, and obviously what you text.

I agree with Dan on the Mac Pro 2010-2012. Best machines out there and very upgradable. Both in drives RAM. video, PCI cards and CPUs. Then slap on a 27"-34" monitor and you've got a real Mac that will last years. Prices have not dropped that much on these machines because of the demand.

Here's a guy selling killer CPU upgrades:

Here's a video from someone else about the advisability of getting an older MacPro:

I would recommend sticking with one of the 2011 model's which are the last models before Apple went to the 'Thin Series' which has a glued screen.

The other option is to jump to a Mac Pro series system if you can swing it (new or old series)!

Upgrades are not without issues, especially on the hard drives.


I see... So any Mac 2011 (with the exception of the 21.5" model, which was hard to fix in 2011) and older are easier to fix than newer ones.


No George - All of the 2011 are much easier to service (21.5" & 27") than any newer iMac.
