I have seen a couple of threads on this topic (due to the recent news) but I still wanted to ask. Sorry for the long post by the way. Do you all think that it is sensible to keep a 2009 Mac Pro now that official support is gone? I recently bought mine this year (2 CPU model, base specs) and have been happy with it for the most part. My intention was to upgrade the parts in it (CPU, RAM, GPU, Storage) so that I can use it for my usual computer needs, and whenever I wanted, game a little on it in Windows. However, after some time with it, I began to price the upgrades more and read up more about the GPU compatibility/boot screen issue. I was always more or less informed, but I really went a bit deeper this time pricing everything and noting the compromises I'd have to make. The short of it is that I began to feel like the upgrades would not be fully worth it as I would be investing in old tech, and quite frankly, the prices seem to be high (CPUs and the delidding service for example) for what I am getting. Instead, I decided to get a really good Windows PC recently (used and at a great deal I think), and I have been contemplating whether I should keep the Mac Pro, sell it, or sell my 2012 Quad Core Mac Mini which I have not used much since getting the Pro, all because I need the money. For the most part, I was sorta on the side of keeping the Pro and selling the Mini. Then, news came that the Mac Pro was no longer supported officially (this really surprised me) and now I am beginning to change my view to the side of selling the Pro and keeping my Mini. What do you guys think? The Pro still suits my needs but I am thinking it may be time that I let it go. I know that the firmware hack 2009 -> 2010 removes the block installing the newer OS and to be honest, I am not someone who uses the newest OS anyway since I believe that they are buggy. However, knowing that my system is not supported further does bother me since I bought this system thinking I can get some use of it for 2-3 years. I am also wondering how long the 2010 would even be supported which does affect 2009 Pros. Are there any one else in this dilemma? Contemplating selling your 2009 Mac Pro now given the lack of official support moving forward? I am thinking it may be more sensible selling the Pro and keeping my Mini since the Mini still has support and AppleCare. I am even thinking of selling the Pro and eventually getting a Hackintosh when money becomes more available. Thanks for reading my rant!
