Hello there. I would be really interested in your thoughts about buying an IMAC. I have wanted one for years and never really had the money to splash out the money to buy a brand new one- (family, beer etc!) I want to make my own recording studio at home to record music and I have found fairly new (late 2009) models on ebay for about 500 pounds. This would make it affordable to get all the gear for a home recording studio for around 1400 pounds. I dont particularly like buying second hand electronic products on ebay but it would offer me the chance to set up relatively cheaply and quickly. I could wait and stretch myself to buy a new one but this would mean I probably couldnt afford everything I need until next year. What are the main pitfalls in buying a second hand machine? I have read that newer Imacs do not allow upgrades so is it actually better to buy older ones that allow it? Any tips? Thanks in advance for your advice!
