What is your opinion on buying used Macs? Is it risky because you never truly know what you're getting? Is it a bad idea since they likely will be even older when you're done with them and have less of a resale value? Or is it worth paying close to what they are new? I am interested in purchasing my first iMac sometime. I have always been afraid of buying used technology. I'd probably have trouble finding one I like since I intend to have a SSD and 32gb of RAM (eventually) and the ability to plug in a large thunderbolt external storage device. I would want it be able to record my rock band's music in Logic Pro as well as edit videos in Final Cut Pro. Additionally, it would record little demos in Garageband, be my iTunes Media Server, do my programming homework, be my primary computer for web designing, etc. My two options are to buy used in a couple of months or wait anywhere from half a year to a whole year to save up for one. Thank you.
