Of all of the products in the Mac line-up, I find it the most appealing. - Ram is upgradable up to 16 GB, which should future proof for the next 5-6 years. - Hard drive is EASILY replaceable. Can replace the 500 GB spinner with a 256 GB Samsung SSD for less than $100. Apple seems to charge around $350 for a similar upgrade. - Integrated DVD drive. At around $0.50 for 8 GB, they are great for long-term storage of video files, IMO. The only real downsides are the age of the processor and the on-board graphics. Then again, the CPU is over twice as fast as the one I'm currently using and the graphics are probably at least twice as powerful. My use involves almost exclusively internet browsing, up to 1080p content on YouTube, NetFlix, etc., word processing, email, and very very light gaming. Am I nuts for even considering such an old machine? It would be around $1300 from Apple refurbished or around $600 used from craigslist.
