Bye Bye Mac. The value of an ‘Expensive’ Computer?
I’ve had Macs for a decade now. gotten my very first one (a G4 mini) after enjoying the this Jobsnote launching it in January 2005. I gotten my second Mac in the summertime of 2007, a black plastic MacBook.
In December of that exact same year we replaced the horrible plasticky Dell box in the kitchen area with a shiny new aluminium iMac. as well as there it has sat, running for a lot more than 7 years.
It’s still going strong, it’s even running Apple’s most current version of OS X 10.10 Yosemite on that original hardware as it was provided method back then.
The iMac served as our household computer as well as as a second DVR to our Sky+ box (using the exceptional Elgato EyeTV 250 Plus). however now the household each have their own devices, laptops, smartphones as well as tablets and it’s no longer being utilized much.
A quick browse of Gmail turns up my original order, I paid £1,111.55. I offered that maker yesterday for £325, returning almost 30% of the purchase price.

Mac’s are not cheap, however in this writers opinion they supply value for money. Bye bye iMac, you served us well.
