Tip: Get a Mac from friends and family. I got my late 2011 iMac for free with the keyboard and mouse, after a network recovery it runs High Sierra really well (even if it is a bit slow) and the only problem I have with mine is that it smells strange and originally had some strange gunk under the stand. But now after cleaning the mac it works great.
Apple probably does not support old machines to upgrade the OS X. But ... do you know if there is any problem that run chrome browser or other apps on old OS X? My wife has a MacBook Air 2014 which deformed recently. I guess it could be the inflation issue of old battery. I don't know if it is worthy to fix it. She continues complaining her chrome cannot upgrade. Is it true?
As an owner of a 2012 15 inch MacBook Pro with a 1 TB SSD and 16gb of ram I’d like to warn people to not use these older computers to produce music or videos. Although the 16gb of ram is enough to get projects started, the problem I had was with the processor. It was simply too slow which cause the computer to overheat, crash or have continuous drop outs if you’re producing music. However, if you are doing basic computing for school, internet use or streaming, these older computers can be well worth the money with a few minor upgrades to RAM and a switch from a hard drive to an SSD.
Im not very tech savvy to say the least but im disabled and would like to copy my DVDs to a SSD hard drive so that they are more convenient to watch and i could watch them on my ipad. I don’t have a Computer right now but i was wondering if you guys would have any suggestions as to what cheap Computer would be good to copy my DVDs to a hard drive ?
I have your “#4” - the mid-2010 MBP. I’ve updated the RAM to 8mb and the drive to 250mb SSD. It runs great for my modest needs. But I’d like to run a more modern OS version than High Sierra. You mention a “patch” - what is that, and what OS version could I reasonably install on this machine?
The mac mini 2012 quad core is a pretty interesting machine performance-wise but it's still hard to find for under 450 euros. The weirdest thing is the price has been stable for a few years now. Still a good compromise if you're looking for the beefiest mac in this price range. It won't run anything above Catalina though.
using and writing this on my secondhand polycarbonate MacBook from late 2009, upgraded to 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, new battery and also cleaned the whole hardware inside so it looks very new and clean, put new thermal paste on both CPUs.. the white plastic case already yellowed a bit, but boi.. it runs really smooth & fast and i think for a 12 years old laptop it's extraordinary good
I still have my 2008 MacBook Pro. I bought it new in June 2009. On my third battery and 2nd power brick. Upgraded the ram to 8 gig about 7 years ago. Still runs great and I use it for Photoshop and for other graphics applications. Still amazed it’s working after all these years of constant use!
I had a few days searching for a model precisely under $200 to replace my late-2013 iMac that just died.
After searching a lot, I went for the Mac Mini 2012. From that model there were units with 4GB RAM and 500GB HD, but also some with 8GB RAM.
I ended up buying the 8GB + 500GB i5, because the i7s were close to $300/$400 and I didn't have the budget at the moment.
The good thing about that model is that it supports the same 16GB of RAM (8GBx2) and 500GB SSD that it had in the iMac, gaining an additional 500GB internal disk. I just made sure to buy the kit to have the two internal drives installed.
While choosing which model to buy, I was unsure whether to go for the i5 or the i7. The iMac was i5 and also from the same era as the Mac Mini 2012 and with the upgrade I did to the SSD and RAM I felt very comfortable, so I understood that I did not have to think about it too much.
When you were talking about the MacBook 13-2010 I was surprised by something you said: "Shop by RAM and storage, don't shop by processor". With that you agreed on the decision I made, which brought me some relief.
Very good video, I liked it so much that I am even considering buying the MacBook 13-2010 to have an alternate Mac
My 2008 MacBook Pro is running BigSur without any lag and I got 1TB and 16GB Ram in it, runs everything awesome and I don’t find any difference than my MacBook Air that’s 10 years newer... it’s the same with Apple watches they all the same the only thing you’s paying for is different watch faces and restrictions removed that Apple secretly locks down
