Yes...she's almost 10 years old! Only Yosemite has managed to slow her down. Upgraded to 4GB of ram and replaced the 320GB drive with a 2TB drive 5.5 years ago. It sure was fun using the glass puller to tear down the machine...geez! Been thinking about a new 27" model for awhile now.....I love the 24" screen i have now. Great for watching videos on Youtube! Current uses: Web, music / itunes server, tax records (turbotax & excel), document retention (Adobe PDF). I still collect CD's so a superdrive is a must for me - Disappointed to see them ditch the drive so as to keep the bezel thin - maybe i can duck tape a superdrive behind the screen ?? In all seriousness....any reason I should avoid a new iMac? This machine has been so durable I would think I would not be able to reproduce that if I instead bought a Macbook and tried to use it connected to large desktop display. Appreciate any thoughts you guys may have...been a long time since I checked into these forums :=) If there are better options for my intended uses, fire away!
