    • I want to make upgrades to the subject computer. I would like to do the work myself but I don’t fully trust my ability to get the job done right. I rather pay to have it done properly. The recent news coming out of WWDC has me deciding to wait until Apple releases something special or going to get a souped up chees-grater from iPower Resellers. I’m looking for some input here. Can I trust the Geek Squad to put in maxed out RAM and a 512GB SSD? I appreciate any help. TIA.

    • I would say definitely go for it. I'm still using a 27" iMac (Late 2009) that I have upgraded with 512GB SSD and maxed out with 16GB RAM running Mac OS 10.11 (El Capitan). I took it to a local Central Computers shop who took a few days to upgrade it.

      Those 2 upgrades made it significantly faster and a joy to use. Can't believe this computer at almost 10 years old still holds its ground.

    • Speaking of WWDC... the upcoming version of macOS will not run on an iMac older than Late 2012. If running the latest version of the OS is important to you a new machine might be in order. My iMac makes the cut for now. On the other hand my laptop (circa 2010) doesn't. It's been mostly relegated to a "guest" computer so visitors can check their email, etc. Guests will have to live with the older OS. I don't travel with a laptop any more so there is no need to replace it with something newer.
